    for Tuesday 22 July 2014.

    Take a look at the items produced by Phil Stamp covers. They are very desirable covers displaying superb creative artwork for many British stamp issues and tend to feature scarce and unique sponsored postmarks. Alas they are not producing many, if any, covers now and they are becoming increasingly difficult to find. Although this makes Phil Stamp covers more of a challenge to collect it might also suggest the value of these covers will only go in one direction!

    Collecting the Postal History of Tomorrow Today
    When we see the term "postal history" used in stamp magazines, catalogues and online, most collectors tend to think of a classic line engraved stamp on a cover featuring a text book cancellation by a rare coloured maltese cross handstamp with an unusual instructional mark thrown in and topped off by the backstamp of a remote village.

    Are Fine Used GB Stamps Undervalued?
    Royal Mail loves all the standing order collectors who, year after year, lovingly keep their unused stamps in perfect, unmounted mint condition and why shouldn't they? After all it's a very good and highly profitable business when you can sell tickets to a show you never have to perform! But, in my opinion, the result of this kind of collecting is a general undervaluation of fine used GB stamps. [...]
