We recently purchased a stamp of the British Commonwealth that was so spectacular we felt privileged to view it, and we are excited to be able to describe it here. The stamp is Jamaica SG85a, a dramatic inverted frame variety of the 1 shilling value, printed in 1920, with a clear 1927 Kingston circular date stamp, and a couple of minor faults. Here it is:
Having the opportunity to obtain such a rare and unusual item is one of the delights of our trade. Buying the stamp at a good price and being able to offer it to an eager customer makes the experience all the more rewarding.
The stamp sold almost immediately to a customer who had requested it on his want list. Generally speaking, we serve our customers via our extensive price list, either online or by mail. However, for our specialized and more advanced customers sending us a want list can be a good idea, even if many of the items are very rare. We are always on the lookout for interesting British stamps with the quality and value that our customers expect. The more information we have about what you are looking for, the more likely it is that we will be able to find it for you.
