For the more than 50 years that we have been in the auction business, we have also acted as intermediaries in the buying and selling of philatelic items directly between collectors (by Private Treaty) – from single stamps and covers of great rarity, to specialised collections & exhibits, in addition to accumulations, dealer’s stocks and printer’s archives.

With our reputation for having sold more high-quality rarities than any other auction firm, there is no one else better positioned to assist collectors in the buying and selling of major rarities. Our years of experience and contact with our clients means we can advise them in the development of their collections as not only do we know which items exist that will take a collection to the next level, but more importantly, we also know where to find those showpiece items.

So if you would like to benefit from or wealth of knowledge and experience, please contact us today.
