STAMPS: Our stamp department offers an annual calendar of wide-ranging auctions of general, specialist one-country and single-owner sales, often resulting in record-breaking prices. The stamps we offer spand from across the world and go back to some the very first ones created. This particular department has historical links to Robson Lowe, one of the greatest 20th Century philatelists, whose business was bought by Christie’s in 1980 and integrated into Spink in 1995.
