    Stanley Gibbons Offer Victorian Jubilee Gems
    The victorian 1887 jubilee stamp issue remains among the most popular in British stamp collecting.

    Two Opinions About Post & Go Stamp Errors
    Much is being made - and sometimes fancy prices paid - about the various inkjet printing errors applied on Royal Mail's Post & Go stamp issues. Given the nature of these stamps I am tending to think collectors should be wary of paying too much for such offers. [...]

    Making Profits From New GB Stamp Issues
    While many of us like to concentrate on building our stamp or cover collections with little regard to eventual profit, I believe our hobby benefits from the more entrepreneurial thinking of some shrewder hobbyists and dealers who aim to make a short term gain from British Stamps. [...]
