Starter Packs

The beautifully engraved issues of the pre-independent French Colonies are still comparatively low-priced and becoming more and more popular. To start you off on, hopefully, years of collecting pleasure, we can supply "STARTER COLLECTIONS". After that, you can order from our stocklists. These packs are always well received and of good value. Please bear in mind that only one pack should be ordered, because subsequent packs would probably include many of the same stamps as the first one. Therefore, to avoid duplication, we suggest you go for the highest value pack you desire, in the first instance. Please note that we only include French Colonies before independence and not the Independent Countries.

Each pack is made up, to order, from our high quality stocks, and consists of 100's of values. It will be accompanied by an invoice listing each stamp's catalogue number to help identification. (State whether SG, Scott or Yvert numbers preferred). As the choice of stamps is ours, prices are discounted from our normal prices which are shown in the stocklists of our monthly sales catalogues (which will also be sent to you).
For the best guide to these issues, we recommend Stanley Gibbons French Colonies Catalogue 2016 1st edition. We can supply it at £34.95 + £5 postage (UK).
