About us

Chris Rainey

I began selling stamps via the school stamp club at the age of 12.  At 14 years I had my first table at a county convention Essex Stamp Day in Chelmsford from there we grew!

I specialize in British Commonwealth Postal history from pre stamp to KGV1 I include some QE11 if it is unusual. The emphasis is on the unusual from Pre Stamp to Great Britain used abroad, Censored covers from military conflicts, Missent markings, Disinfection, Overprints & Surchages.

The listing is endless with nearly 10,000 listed items.

Most days more new material is added. Come along and have a look

Members: Philatelic Traders Society.  I am also a fellow of both The Royal Philatelic Society London and The Society of Postal Historians.
