The purpose of these pages is to advise customers of recent (& prospective) changes to Price Lists on this web site.

All of our Price Lists remain current irrespective of any embedded dates.

There is a powerful Google search engine on the Home Page which will search the whole web site, including all price lists.

In addition, Adobe Reader also has a powerful "find" facility to search an open individual price list.

Price Lists are updated periodically when necessary when we add substantial new stock or sell existing stock.  Some lists will be updated regularly (every 6 months or so) whilst others, where we are acquiring no new stock, will be updated infrequently (every 2 years or so).  We do not update lists for every single transaction so there may be occasional minor stock-outs.

This page will list the most significant changes which have been made to our price lists published on this site in the last 2 years.  Minor changes are not notified.

SPECIALS 39:   European covers and postcards with special cancels and slogan cancels.  Countries include Austria, Liechtenstein, Germany and Switzerland. Click Specials 39 for our price list.

SWITZERLAND SPECIAL CANCELS:   New Price list established for commemorative & special cancel / special event covers & postcards (envelope size C6, very clean, illustrated, unaddressed or typed / machine printed addresses).  They are largely priced as Fine Used, without premium or, for scarce covers, with a modest premium. Click Switzerland Special Cancels for our price list.

Swiss covers have also been added to our Defence Forces, Australian Flight and Exhibition lists.  [18.7.19]

NETHERLANDS:   First Day Covers added for 1960 - 2013.  Covers are pristine -- clean and unaddressed -- and any exceptions are noted.  Apart from a few early and scarce non-standard sheetlet / M/S covers, all are priced as FINE USED (ie, there is no premium for being a FDC).  This is a real benefit for both Netherlands FU and/or FDC collectors.  For FU collectors, at their request, we are prepared to scissor the covers to save on postage costs, but we are NOT prepared to soak the stamps which will be supplied on piece.  Once scissored, items can not be returned if you change your mind.

It should be noted that many modern issues are fairly large sheetlets or mini sheets which do not fit on the standard size NVPH FDC.  Consequently, NVPH breaks up the sheetlet / MS (usually into blocks / strips) and applies these to two or more covers.  We list these as singles from sheetlets / M/S, even though they are blocks or strips.  Our list also includes complete sets of ECU Letter Covers and Teleletter Covers, both supplied in SAFE FDC albums for no extra charge.  Click Netherlands for our price list.  [17.6.19]

Fighting in the Balkans over an extended period of time has seen some States disappear only to remerge decades later, then join with other States to form a new alliance.  This makes it difficult to locate specific stamp issues as they could be in one of several list locations.

To assist colelctors locate specific issues, we have divided our Price List Schedule into two sections, the second section identifying list locations.  We will add to this list on a needs basis in the future.

The French Colonies provide another similar maze and the location of specific colonies is identified at the beginning of our French Colonies Price List.  [9.7.17]
