Welcome to Shaftesbury Philatelics - The home of GB Stamps & Postal History is the place to be for philatelists to discover fine GB stamps and postal history. Specialising in early Queen Victoria issues from Line Engraved Penny Blacks, Two Penny Blues and Penny Reds to Queen Victoria Surface Printed.

Shaftesbury Philatelics also trade through the Shaftesbury Philatelics eBay shop. Regular 99p start auction style listings make an appearance with a chance to buy stamps and postal history. We attend many Philatelic Shows throughout the year covering most of the South West. Check out the Fairs page to see where we are next and contact us if you would like to see any specific stock.

Alongside the stock of Queen Victoria, later issues of Edward VII, George V, Edward VIII and George VI stamps and postal history are available on the website. Telegraph stamps, blue postmarks, and railway telegraph postmarks are regularly stocked.

Shaftesbury Philatelics is a family run business with an interest in collecting Queen Victorian stamps ourselves, and a keen interest in 1840 Penny Blacks. We welcome questions about any item listed on the website or eBay. Please use the info available on the Contact Us page to get in touch, like many of our regular customers do.
