Forth Road Bridge 1964-2014 50th Anniversary Souvenir PackForth Road Bridge Anniversary 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.

Gift Vouchers
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.

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. Follow this link.
