Anton had a free stamp valuation at Gustamps before the free valuation Anton had his stamps valued elsewhere. Anton told Gustamps his brother had given him a box of stamps to sell. Anton lived in Surrey and took the box to a local stamp dealer in Surrey. The Surrey dealer charged Anton a £10 fee for the valuation (which took about 5 minutes) quoting £50 as the value. The dealer also offered to buy the box for £50. Anton told Gustamps that he paid the dealer the £10 valuation fee but declined the offer to sell the stamps. Anton said he waS late for an appointment in Brighton and left Gustamps’ shop in haste, saying he would pop in tomorrow.
Gustamps thanks Anton for allowing Gustamps to share his valuation experience.
