Robert Murray Stamp Shop,

Edinburgh Castle stamp

Scotland's Leading Dealer, Valuer, and Auctioneer, for stamps, coins, banknotes, medals, and cards.

Thank you for visiting our website.
The big news is that Robert Murray is working towards semi-retirement. The selling-off of stock is underway, as a mix between retail sales, wholesale sales, and auction sales.

We have stopped doing our "quick informative valuations", and we are not buying any material for stock. Neither are we currently accepting material for sale by auction.
We do however still carry out formal valuations (e.g. for insurance or estate valuation), and we can still handle gold coins etc.
If you are wanting to sell stamps, coins, postcards, banknotes, etc. we do have list of other dealers available - please email us asking for a copy.

We are working towards having at least two more online auctions (i.e. at least one live and one timed) but have still to set dates for these.

The retail shop is not open at any regular hours, though customers can visit by appointment, or can get in touch to arrange to pick up items they would like to purchase.
*** The retail shop will be open on the following dates.
Monday 26th September, 10am to 4pm. (Changed to Tuesday due to a funeral.)
Tuesday 27th September, 10am to 4pm
Thursday 6th October, 10am to 4pm.
Saturday 15th October, 10am to 4pm.
No appointment required. Face masks are still required.
The shop has had a lot of tidying and rearrangement, and there's new stock in all sorts of categories.
We've had the shop open several times recently, and that's been going well, so we're looking forward to doing it all again !

Keep watching here, and on our Facebook page, for notes about new stock etc. ***

In the meantime, we are visiting areas of our very large stock, and we'll list below different categories as and when we can "go live" with them.

In due course the shop will be closed, we will have disposed of our stocks, and we'll not be running auctions. However, Bob Murray will still be active in the stamps and collectables world - carrying out valuations, giving advice to clients with collections for sale, and connecting collectors/dealers/auctioneers where appropriate. With his lengthy experience he's well placed to point people in the right direction.
