Probate Valuations of Stamps

The valuation of a stamp collection or accumulation for probate can be complex, as just a single stamp album can contain hundreds or even thousands individual items. In-depth commercial philatelic knowledge built across many years is essential.

We charge 2 .5%+VAT of the valuation amount with a minimum charge £250+VAT.

To give you added peace of mind, if we believe your stamps are of low value we'll highlight this early on, providing you with the opportunity to stop the valuation.

If we recommend continuing with the probate valuation process, once you have received the full probate valuation you may eventually decide to sell the stamp collection. 

Sandafayre can also help you in selling the stamps; whether selling directly to us OR through one of our Public Auctions. If you sell your stamps to us or through our Public Auction, we will refund or waive the probate valuation costs.
