welcome to stamp collector

Have you added the Victoria high values to your collection? Is the £5 Orange top of your wants list? These British beauties consistently sell for impressive sums as demand continues. But can they really be described as postage stamps? Many of them were rarely used for postal services. David Bailey examines the famous stamps in this issue (see page 44), and I’d love to know whether you’re a fan. If you’re keen to buy a high value there are many traders in this very issue who will be able to help you. It’s so encouraging to see that stamp traders and auctioneers around the world are continuing to offer their stock, despite the restrictions we’re all having to endure. Remember you can receive weekly updates and offers with our free newsletter,…

stamp update

Guernsey stamps to feature competition winners Guernsey Post has revealed the twelve children who have won a design a-stamp competition and will see their designs featured on one of two forthcoming stamp sets, #GuernseyTogether and #AlderneySpirit. The campaign, which was launched by Guernsey’s Post philatelic team earlier this month, invited schoolchildren across Guernsey, Alderney, Sark and Herm to create stamp designs, which should relate to the current pandemic in a positive way. The designs for the stamps, which are due to be released in late summer following approval of Her Majesty, The Queen, were chosen from over 200 entries by independent judges, Tom Langford, commissioner for Guernsey Arts Commission and managing director of award-winning design and advertising agency, The Potting Shed, and Al Mitchell, who has been with the Guernsey-based agency for…

guernsey marks liberation 75

Guernsey Post recently issued a special set of commemorative stamps designed to blend modern-day celebrations with elements taken from stamps issued during the Second World War. The Occupation of Guernsey began at around 8.30pm on Sunday 30 June, with German troop numbers roughly equalling the number of remaining islanders who had to endure hunger, poor medical attention, and fear. After five long years, surrender of the Channel Islands eventually took place during the early hours of 9 May 1945, the day after Victory in Europe, VE Day. Malnourished, but nevertheless joyous, crowds gathered on St Peter Port seafront and harbour as the first British Troops landed. Bridget Yabsley, head of philatelic at Guernsey Post said: ‘Liberation Day in Guernsey is celebrated each year on 9 May, and is a hugely significant event in…

‘carry us through’ stamps honour key workers

The Isle of Man Post Office’s ‘Carry Us Through’ stamp set recognises and celebrates the Island’s community, key frontline delivery workers and health care professionals, acknowledging acts of kindness, unity, care and positivity during the Covid-19 pandemic. The ‘Carry Us Through’ stamps highlight the message that Love, Faith, Care, Compassion, Work, Community, Words and Science will #CarryUsThrough these unprecedented times.

The concept was created by Ben Glazier who wanted to create…

harry vardon, jersey’s golfing great

2020 marks the 150th birth anniversary of world-renowned golfer, Harry Vardon, who won the British Open Championship in 1896, 1898, 1899, 1903, 1911 and then in 1914, at the age of 44. He also won the US Open Championship in 1900. Vardon was born in Jersey on 9 May 1870. He became an apprentice gardener aged thirteen and started to take an interest in golf when a course was built nearby. Vardon didn’t receive any professional lessons but, in his late teen years, he entered a few golf tournaments. It wasn’t until he saw his younger brother making a career out of the sport that he decided to follow the same path. Vardon got his first break in the golfing world in the Caddies Competitions run by the Committee Club at the…
