Hello and welcome

Paper Heritage have been selling stamps at stamp fairs since 1979, and online through our website since about 1999.  Our stocks are all-world, except for the British Commonwealth.  We are quite new to Delcampe, where we are planning on listing a mixture of world stamps and a substantial selection of our major thematic, Railways.  Some of the railway thematics will be listed under the theme, some under countries.  If you collect railways, we would strongly recommend that you view ALL our other items.

We want our customers to be happy with their purchases.   If you are unhappy for any reason, please contact us and we shall do our best to put things right.  We try to be accurate with descriptions and to point out hidden faults; please see the scans for centering, perforations, cancellations etc.


All older stamps offered by us are believed to be authentic, unless otherwise stated, or unless sold 'as is' or 'as seen', which means that we cannot vouch for their authenticity.  

We try to avoid listing any modern stamps considered to be illegal but identifying them is very difficult.  Please let us know if you find any such stamps in our listings, so that we can remove them.

The vast majority of the stamps we offer are standard postage stamps. However, we may list, from time to time, privately-produced stamps, fantasies, post-Soviet overprints and similar items, often either of a 'cinderella' nature or bearing few of the qualities of a regular postage stamp.

Abbreviations We use the following abbreviations from time to time :
