Hello, I am back home, how nice, temperature is 31 C. argghh lovely…. double what it was in London... but back to stamps. What about this one. Anything special about it?

I think so and it is something I think should be highlighted to buyers if / when offered for sale, as to some collectors it is important.

Something we see so often these days and perhaps not in the best spirit of the stamp dealer mailing orders. Your point of view?

I will add more in a few days if you cannot spot what I am referring to.

enjoy your stamps.. Michael or please visit our store, we would love to see you...

Hello, A new Machin today. I am still in the UK and this arrived with the other two values that were released in June / July this year with the M19L date code.

Nice to have these as I had forgotten all about them.

Have a lovely philatelic weekend, and if you have time please visit our online shop We just hit 15,000 feedbacks How much more confidence do you need to look at our stamps ......and we hope you will fill a few gaps in your collection.

Hello, today here in the UK the Gruffalo stamps were issued. Thought you might like to see them if you have not already.

So many people I speak to like them. But then none are stamp collectors, and many are buying for children. The presentation pack has a snakes and ladders board game included.

You certainly won't find many postally used I would think, especially a full strip of three.

Enjoy your stamps. Michael
