Robert Murray Stamp Shop, Edinburgh



2005 to 2013
Well, it is probably fair to say that this page has been neglected !  Styles and practices have changed, but this page was never discarded. Now (as at December 2013) our normal practice is to mention more important news and updates on our home page at, and more general, or ephemeral, or less important (though still interesting !) notes and comments on our shop FaceBook page, which is often also noted on our Google+ page. We do not overwhelm these pages with too much stuff, so you should be quite safe to sign up !

29 January
UK Commemorative price lists updated, with newer issues included, and many changes in prices - both upwards and downwards. We guess about 80% of prices are changed. Also many of the PHQ cards previously without prices have now been done. Some last checking still to be done.
