Philately is one of our key areas of expertise, and our Suffolk auctions regularly offer an impressive selection of stamps and postal items.


With our combination of expertise and strong awareness of changing market conditions, our focus is always on securing the highest possible return for our clients.


Currently, the market favours the early classics and high denominations. We are also more than happy to accept accumulations of stamps and covers in bulk, whilst sorting them carefully to identify scarcer pieces. 


It's worth noting that the average collection of stamps is worth relatively little. Royal Mail and other commemorative first day covers are typically of low secondary market value.
