How to sell your stamps with us


Appraisals and Valuations
Here at Stanley Gibbons we are happy to give advice on the potential value of single stamps, postal history and collections. In fact anything philatelic that you may wish to sell.

Most of the enquiries we receive are usually regarding collections that they have inherited or a few loose stamps. In which case as a good starting point it is best to contact us via email. Please do your best to provide a brief outline of what you have for sale and more importantly attach sample photos of what you believe to be the oldest, best condition and most valuable stamps.

File size should be no more than 15MB.


  • If the stamps are in an album please send photos of the album pages as opposed to individual stamps.
  • A sample of the collection should be sufficient.
  • We will not value the collection from a scan or photograph, they are simply for us to assess what you have, and decide whether further examination is required.
