Selling and valuing your collection
The following notes might be of use if you are considering selling your collection or wish to estimate its value for insurance purposes.
To value your collection of British first day covers the following is a must buy:
'Collecting British First Day Covers': This catalogue has been published every year since 1980 and is now regarded as the collectors' bible. It will give you a good idea of what your collection is worth. It only deals with British first day covers. This catalogue is available from this website - click on the link above. This publication will help you to determine the difference between very common covers and those which could be worth £100 or more.
- If your covers are in pristine condition and bear UK stamps and are pre 1975, I might be interesting in purchasing. If the envelopes are inscribed GPO or ROYAL MAIL, I would NOT be interested, as these were produced in very large numbers and are usually worth very little.
