Christmas and New Year Opening Hours
We will be open normal hours up to Saturday 22 December, then return to normal working hours from Friday 4 January (for appointments) and Saturday 5 January (for retail shop business). We will also be open on Saturday 29 December from Noon to 6pm.
Our next public auction sale is planned for early February 2019, and the catalogue will be available on this website about one week beforehand. See this page for general auction information.
Our auctions are held every few weeks. Auction dates in the first part of 2019 are likely to be early February, late March, and June.
Modern U.K. Coins
We have been getting such a large number of phone calls about modern UK coins - particularly the 50p, but also £1 and £2 - that we have written new web pages explaining the actual values of them; see fifty pence, one pound, or two pound pages. We do not need to buy any of these !
Forth Road Bridge 1964-2014 50th Anniversary Souvenir Pack
We've produced a special pack for the Bridge's Fiftieth Birthday, using original 1964 stamps, the black card and clear cover from 1970s/80s packs, but with a completely new descriptive wrapper, using photographs taken on the actual anniversary day (4 September 2014). These are available in our shop at £5 each.
Robert Murray Stamp Shop on Amazon
We usually have a wide range of books in stock, from very general popular titles, to some very specialised and often esoteric. Even visitors to our shop probably woudn't know we had them unless they asked. We have recently started offering some of these on Amazon; follow this link to see our current offerings (takes you off-site). And of course anything there is also available to retail shop customers.)
The Shop has an online presence on Facebook, Google+, and at LinkedIn. Please feel free to "like" or "connect" as appropriate in order to keep up with some of the snippets and comments that might not appear here.
We can provide gift vouchers for any value £5 upwards, and which can be spent on any purchases from our shop. We're even happy for people to spend their voucher in stages. These can be supplied by post.
UK NEW ISSUES
We made a policy decision to stop handling new UK stamp issues as a matter of course. (We do however continue to handle them on the secondary market.) For further information please follow this link.Also see Robert Murray's major article (published in The Philatelic Exporter) on the subject of the British Post Office's stamp issuing policy, and how this might effect the stamp business.
