Our inventory of mint and used Canada and British North America is comprehensive. We also have at hand extensive British Commonwealth, and European countries are well represented in our stock. Some popular topical collections are also available, as are a good selection of lots and collections.
Our standards for grading stamps are as strict and accurate as is humanly possible. We have built an outstanding reputation throughout our years as a retail stamp store and formerly as an auction house. We believe that our on-line relationship with our customers must adhere to the same high business standards we have always applied. If you believe an item is not as described, return it to us for a full refund.
