Open for business - we're back!

Thank you for your patience while we have been processing orders and restocking the latest new issues.

We have now reopened the webshop.  A number of new Machin security stamps have been received since we closed, and we have also added the forgery of the £1 brown, and the 1997 trial printings by Courvoisier (only a few of those).   Also new are maximum cards of the Songbirds and David Bowie - we haven't seen any Bowie maximum cards anywhere else - and the Thistle and Post Office railway digitally-printed Post and Go stamps.

The full list:

Spear Thistle Post and Go single 1st class FV24
Post Office Underground Railway Post and Go 1st class and Collectors Strip FV25
