Will you buy the entire collection or “cherry-pick”?
When building up a collection, whether it is a single country collection of say Great Britain, or a collection of Birds on stamps, the same method applies – the collector can quickly acquire the bulk of stamps needed to form a good basis fairly cheaply, as they are relatively common.
When the collector gains more experience and confidence, and perhaps more importantly money, they can then look to buy the more expensive items.
When it comes to selling the collection it would be very easy for us to say that we are only interested in the “better” items. This however is very detrimental to you the seller. If you allow a dealer to “cherry-pick”, then whilst you may think that you are getting a good price for the special stamps, it will inevitably prove very difficult to sell the balance without those “key”stamps present. That is why we make an offer for everything – it is far cleaner, quicker and easier for the seller and more economically sound.
