We are independent and can therefore offer an unbiased estimate of the value of collection of Rare Stamps. Our approach to valuation combines our considerable expertise with the involvement of at least two teams which work independently one from another and provide an independent view to our clients which is free of any conflict of interest.

While the attributes used to value Rare Stamps may vary from one type of Rare Stamp to another, we place the utmost importance on the following common criteria:

  • Authenticity;
  • Condition;
  • Rarity;
  • Country of origin;
  • Historical importance;
  • Provenance;
  • Fashion;
  • Quality;
  • Exit strategy.

The consideration of the exit strategy includes the assessment of the time, place and method of sale—private treaty, public auction or Vickrey auction (second-price sealed-bid auction).
