PLATING AND CONSULTANCY SERVICE:
I provide this service for the modest charge of 1.25 per stamp (1.50 for stamps on cover) - for more details, click on the 'HELP' button above... Most of my regulars also know that I supply PLATING CDs for those who wish to take the DIY route...see my 'HELP' page for details...

***NEWS***

PLATING SERVICE
My plating backlog has now reduced to about 50! However, as you will doubtless recall, we have been away, so please do not send any plating without speaking to me first. Because of travel and other commitments, nothing before MARCH 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!

LATEST UPDATE: 17.2.2018
