Robert Murray Stamp Shop,
U.K. Commemorative Stamps
Available from stock. Click here to see an explanation of the different categories.
(Any prices quoted in grey indicate that we are out of stock.)
Pricing of decimal issues. We have used a method of
pricing which may at first seem complicated, but is
easily understood with a minute's serious thinking !
|Other categories not priced on the list;
First Day Covers; We do not now list individual standard first day covers, as they are so cheap. You can buy them in our shop from out big "pick-your-own" boxes at 50p each (or 10 for £4, or 100 for £30). We also sell sandom bundles at £20 per hundred or £15 per kilo. We do keep stocks of individually priced FDCs, but these are the ones with better postmarks, or privately produced covers, etc.
PHQ Cards; Again, we have stopped pricing all but the earliest cards individually, and sell them in bundles by weight, or from browsing boxes in our shop.
Used Stamps; We have extensive stocks of individual used commemoratives, but these don't have standard prices due to quality of cancel etc.
Gutter Pairs; for the vast majority of these we just charge for two sets.

QUALITY; all prices are for goods in the following
Mint sets - prices for unmounted mint, with no faults. Any sets issued in blocks or strips se-tenant are supplied that way unless specifically stated. We can very often supply lightly mounted mint examples of some of the dearer pre-decimal sets, usually at about 40% less than the prices here.
Presentation Packs - all prices are for fine condition, although in the earlier years, a certain amount of cellophane shrinkage/warping/splitting is to be expected. Our stock usually represents the better end of the range of quality of the material that passes through our hands. In later years (mid-1970s onwards), we would expect to supply in "Post Office Quality", i.e. as supplied when new. (In some cases our packs will be better than average post office issue quality, as any we see with obvious short perforations etc. on the stamps will be rejected by us.)
