Welcome to David Shaw Postal History
We are full-time dealers in GREAT BRITAIN and WORLD POSTAL HISTORY and have been established as a mail order business since 1981.
We are here to help you get involved in this fascinating collecting hobby which covers old letters and postmarks from the last 400+ years. Most of our stock is Great Britain related but we have a growing selection of antique letters and stamped envelopes from many other countries.
Please use this site in conjunction with our eBay shop: DAVID SHAW'S OLD LETTERS. The eBay shop has at least one image for every item and is added to regularly. Do feel free to email us with any GB Postal History requirements as we have lots more stock yet to be listed.
Please note that we do not deal in FIRST DAY COVERS or modern philatelic mails.View the 4,981 stock items for sale on our website...
