Hungerford Coin & Stamp Centre
The last few days have been busy going on house calls to view and value large collections.
One call was to view a very important Victorian stamp collection housed neatly in an album and properly written up in pencil over the years. The collector knew exactly what he owned, had kept all the original invoices (provenance) and presented the collection for sale intact. I was the third dealer to look at it and I made a very strong offer which was accepted.
Next off to see a stamp widow who had 3 bedrooms full of stamps in plastic crates from floor to ceiling. Unfortunately the value was just too low to justify the work involved and it would have filled three vans!
Each to their own, collectors all have their unique ways of collecting.
