Empire Philatelists is the trading name of Just Posh Art Ltd. Stuart, our stamp guy, took an interest in stamps as a boy and started collecting in the late 1960's. After setting up a shop on eBay to sell some of his collection he realised he could turn his hobby into a business and so Empire Philatelists was born.

Gibraltar 1960 10s Yellow & Blue (SG172) with an ‘extra petal’ on one of the flowers of its design. Stanley Gibbons have agreed that the error was catalogue-worthy, provided they can determine its sheet position.
Labuan 1892 6c on 8c Mauve Surcharged in Red (Inverted) & with No Dot at Lower Left. Stamp is SG36a & SG36b Combined. The only known example which benefits from a Brandon Certificate
