At Embassy Philatelists, we believe in providing a transparent and fair auction experience for all collectors. That's why we don't charge a buyer's premium, unlike many other auctions that add on an extra 10% - 25% on top of the hammer price.

With 45 years of experience in trading GB stamps and producing monthly retail lists, we know the market inside out. In fact, we noticed a gap in the market back in 1990 and set up G.B.P.A. - a regular postal auction specialising in GB stamps only. For the last 33 years, we have been helping collectors build their GB collections, and we are excited to now partner with Easy Live Auction to bring you G.B.I.S.A - Great Britain Internet Stamp Auctions.

To make things easy for collectors, we provide estimates in ranges (i.e. £100-£120), with the lower figure serving as both the reserve and starting price. If you have any questions or require any additional information about any of our lots, please don't hesitate to reach out to us via email.
