***NEWS***

AWAY...
We are now away until 19 October. Orders received in our absence will be dealt with on our return on the usual 'First Come, First Served' basis...

PLATING SERVICE
I now have a backlog of some 200+, but because of travel and other commitments, I will have little opportunity to do any plating for some time. Accordingly please do not send any plating without speaking to me first. In any event, nothing more before late OCTOBER 2019 will now be considered. Unsolicited plating, sent without prior contact, will be automatically relegated to the bottom of the heap, in the 'Maybe One Day' basket...

The last EBAY LIST has long since finished - hopefully I will be able to find time to load a new list soon! Just click on the link at the bottom of this page...and HAPPY HUNTING!

    OTHER PHILATELIC MATERIAL:

  • IMPRIMATUR PHOTOS: I have a number of duplicate NPM Imprimatur Photos, superfluous to my collection, which I am offering for sale at 10 each. These are high quality ACTUAL SIZE black-and-white photographs of the First Registration Sheet, i.e. the first sheet off the press of each new plate, and are invaluable plating reference tools. A batch of these has been loaded, most on the 1844 1d REDS page, but including the RARE PLATE 22 on the DIE II ALPH III (C7-C13) page. (In addition to those plates listed, I also have the following Die I plates available: 5, 13, 18, 47-56, 58 and 59. Please contact me if any of these are required.)
