As a Glaswegian of Chilean descent and born in Singapore, both sides of my brain compete furiously every day.

Even rarer than the Penny Black – get yours now if you're quick
Here is an exceptional opportunity for you to secure a highly prized stamp…
Examples of this particular stamp are significantly rarer than the Penny Black and hence more of a prize for the enlightened collector or investor.
The stamp was issued hot on the heels of the Penny Black, with the first recorded postmark being the 8th May 1840, just two days after the 1d, allowing a letter weighing up to a full ounce to be sent anywhere in Britain (the Penny Black was half an ounce).
We were extremely lucky to get these. Click to read the full newsletter

This one’s a keeper…
On one of those recent, show-stopping, snow-bitten days here in the UK, where even our Guernsey office had a scattering of white flakes and the airport was closed, I got a call from Ania Polyniak, our rare manuscripts buyer.
“Keith, I think you are going to love me! ” she purred in her pronounced but soft Eastern European lilt…
And here's why…Ania, to her immense credit, has unearthed something spectacular and exceptionally rare.
I believe it's one of the best signature pieces we've ever offered you. Click to read the full newsletter
Another series of mistakes, which I won't apologise for...
The standard cliché is all about 'learning from mistakes' however, as a Stanley Gibbons customer, we allow you to profit from them.
No, I'm not suffering from a surfeit of the festive spirit (Lagavulin single malt by choice), simply highlighting a unique and powerful investment opportunity: in the careful, deliberate and painstaking world of philately, where, after all, the end product is a type of currency, printing errors (which are rare) make highly desirable collectables.
That means you can profit from the mistakes of others. Click to read the full newsletter

Return of the dragon… And your exclusive opportunity
