Welcome to the Stampsforsale search facility
|Looking for a specific stamp?
The notes on each section may help you before you use the search facility.
|There are several ways of looking for a specific stamp. It does not matter whether you use capitals or lower case|
|Search by SG Number|
|You can enterjust the number or SG followed by the number, for example SG1 or SG 1|
| Due to the nature of the search mechanism some searches may return a lot of results. SG1 or 1 for example will return every stamp where the first digit is a 1.
All Single Great British items are listed exactly as per Concise or Collect British Stamps.
Early Issues where there are different shades and plates, I may only list the various plates under one SG number. For example SG148 will only return a result for one stamp, but sg150 will return the plates as well. So please try all shade numbers if you don't get the complete listing you would like.
Commemorative Sets are listed on the site using the first and last numbers of the set. For example 1953 Coronation is listed as SG 532-535. You only need to enter the first SG number of the set, SG 532 or 532.
Regional Issues except Channel Island stamps are listed as the catalogue listing. For example S48. Please do not leave a gap between the prefix letter and the number. All Channel Islands and Isle of Man Issues are listed as per Collect Channel Islands and Isle of Man Stamps. All issues have a prefix letter Alderney is A, Guernsey is G, Jersey is J and Isle of Man is IOM. As with GB stamps you only need to enter the first number of a stamp set. You must leave a space between the prefix Letter and the Number, for example G 524 will return the set listed as G 524-528.
All Edward 7 Specialised and George 5 Downey Heads, Royal Cypher, Block Cypher, Photogravure and Seahorse Specialised Numbers are listed. Entering SGM1-2 for example, will return SG M1-2 Edward VII ½d Dull Blue Green (DLR). Please do not leave a space between the prefix letter and the number.
All Items Listed in my Selected items Section have the SG numbers in the Description Field. So please use that search for specific Selected items.
|Search by Scott Number|
|Please just enter the number, for example 313 will return the result for Alderney, Guernsey, Isle of Man and Great Britain, as all have a set where the first stamp is 313. All Scott listed items are listed exactly as per the Scott Catalogue. Not all Scott numbers are listed, so please try the relevant SG number or a description if you know it, if your search fails to return a result. Commemorative Sets are listed on the site using the first and last numbers of the set. For example 1953 Coronation is listed as 313-16 . You only need to enter the first number of the set, 313. Regional Issues and All Channel Islands and Isle of Man Issues are listed by Scott, but as Scott does not give any prefix letters for these issues, neither does my listing. Therefore entering 1 for Example will return all stamps listed by Scott starting with a 1.|
Search by Description
| Please enter a description word(s) ie Coronation. You can also enter a year, ie 1966 and this will then return results with every stamp listed issued in 1966.
If you enter Coronation, the search will then return any item where the word Coronation is found. The Descriptions I use are as Concise for all Issues except for GB Commemoratives and Channel Island Commemoraties.
In these cases, a simplified Description has been used. For example 1979 Spring Wild Flowers is Listed as Flowers, so when doing a word seach,
please use the most relevent word from the catalogue description. If a search fails to return any result or the desired result, please try alternative word(s).
All Items Listed in my Selected items Section have the SG numbers in the Description Field. So please use this search for specific Selected items.
