Stamps, Revenues, Postal History of Europe

Stamps, Revenues, Postal History of Europe

We deal in stamps and postal history of Europe, and also publish a series of standard catalogues on revenue stamps.

I first began dealing in stamps 40+ years ago, to augment my collection of the stamps of France.

The years rolled on, and now we are a family-run company based in York, England, as a mail-order business.....

Our internet business is well established.

You receive my personal attention and experience, whether on-line or by postal mail.

Enjoy exploring the on-line offers and information pages........... John Barefoot.
