Insurance stamp valuations from the experts – We are one of the world’s leading philatelic auctioneers and specialist dealers, established for almost 50 years. Sandafayre has the expertise and professionalism to undertake the most thorough and knowledgeable appraisal of your stamp collection for insurance purposes.


Sandafayre provides insurance stamp valuations. An insurance valuation is based on our estimation of the likely replacement costs of the collection. If you already own a valuable stamp collection, accumulation or rarity you will know it is a complex and highly-prized asset like almost no other; we recommend that it be adequately insured for the appropriate amount.

We have almost 50 years of experience in all things philatelic, and we are highly respected as leading experts in the field of stamps and philately. This includes rare stamps, postal history, collections and entire estates of collectables.

Here at Sandafayre, we help ensure you get the right level of cover. We provide you with a valuation for the insurance for your stamp collection. Our valuations are expertly researched by our dedicated philatelic specialists. Once you have received our written valuation all you need to do is pass this to your insurance company who will then provide you with the relevant cover.


We want to ensure that you are well prepared and in a position that, should the worst happen to your stamp collection or portfolio, you receive an accurate settlement figure from your insurance provider.

Our insurance stamp valuations are based on the likely cost of replacing your stamp collection in the open market. With a professional philatelic valuation, you will be in the strongest position to secure the right settlement from your insurance provider.

An insurance valuation for a stamp collection, accumulation or single rarity is complex. As a result, it requires in-depth expert Philatelic knowledge built over many years. We typically charge 2.5%+VAT of the valuation amount or a minimum of £250+VAT.

To give you added peace of mind, if we believe your stamps are of low value we’ll highlight this early on. Therefore providing you with the opportunity to stop the valuation.
