We Buy all British Commonwealth and Empire Stamps

We Buy all British Commonwealth and Empire Stamps

We are major, and consitent buyers, of all good quality British Commonwealth and Empire stamps. Whether they are single stamps, sets, a few stamps in an album or a life time collection in several albums, we are always interested

If you are thinking of selling your collection, you have inherited a stamp collection and have no idea of its worth, or if you are a fellow stamp dealer looking to sell your stamp stock, simply complete the form below and we will get back to you

Along with images we will need a brief description of the stamps you have

Once we have assessed your collection we will contact you on the email provided

If you are near us you can call to arrange an appointment to bring your collection in, or if you have a large collection we can arrange to visit.

If you are further afield then we will arrange to get your stamps sent to us, where upon, we will value and return the collection to you. All at no cost to you

What do we need to know?

  • The Era - is it Queen Victoria, King George V or VI, Edward VII or Queen Elizabeth II, or a mixture
  • The Countries represented
  • The condition - are they mint or have they been used? Are they loose, neatly presented in an album or are they on cover?

We also require a random selection of photos of what you believe to be the oldest, best condition and most valuable stamps. If you are unsure then just photograph the first few pages of each album. We only need images of whole album pages, we don't need images of individual stamps unless you want us to specifically look at a particular stamp (see Sending Images instructions below)

Once we have this information it will enable us to assess whether your collection is of value, upon which we will arrange a full appraisal. This will involve arranging for us to see the stamps in person or, in these strange times, we are also offering Zoom meetings where we can view and discuss your collection, all from the comfort of your own home.

If you are happy with our valuation then we will make you an offer with the view to buying

If we are not interested in buying your stamps we will put you in touch with a dealer who may be interested, or an auction house who will be able to sell the stamps on your behalf

What we buy

  • All British Commonwealth Countries 
  • Stamps of Great Britain
  • Face Value (see below)

We can ensure that a top price is paid for your stamps with no commission or charges.

Any payments to you will be immediate and we can also guarantee that you will receive the price you were offered

Face Value

We pay between 35% & 50% of the Face Value of the stamps for all unused Queen Elizabeth II decimal stamps, including presentation packs, set, booklets, singles and sheets. 

Selling your stamps to Empire Philatelists is beneficial in more ways than simply our competitive price guarantee.

When you sell to us, we promise

  • NO commission or hidden fees
  • NO delay in payment
  • Top Prices Paid

You are one step away from knowing whether what you are holding is going to make you rich
