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.


YUGOSLAVIA:  SUCCESSOR STATES:   Our Price List has been expanded and much new material from many of the new independent states added, including material from these states pre the creation of Yugoslavia.  Click Yugoslavia: Successor States for our price list

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]

PRICE LIST NUMBERING:   Due to the ever increasing number of Price Lists and our desire for alphabetic listing by region, we are abandoning Price List numbering in favour of simply list titles.  Due to the large number of lists (160+ now),  this may take some time as we do not regard it as a high priority.

Available lists and their locations can be found on our web page titled "Price List Schedule". Lists are grouped primarily by continent and, in the case of Europe, further subdivided by the traditional Stanley Gibbons [SG] country affiliations which, sadly, SG is now abandoning.  [7.2.16]

BRAZILWe have established a new group of price lists for South America.  At present, it contains only two lists, viz Brazil & Surinam.  The remaining South American countries are located in our World (non-British Commonwealth) list.

Used) across a number of decades but mainly the 1960s to the 1990s.  Quality South American collections are difficult to source but we hope to expand our stock for other countries in the future.  Brazil  is the largest country in South America by both geographic size and by population.  It is the 8th largest country in the world by GDP, is passionate about football, and has hosted / is hosting a number of world major sporting events.  It is a country often overlooked by Australian stamp collectors because of the difficulty sourcing quality material.  Click Brazil for our price list.  [10.9.15]
