Harmer Family News

  Generations of collectors put their trust in the Harmer Family. 

Mauritius Rediscovered by Robert Beech, the Curator of the British Library Philatelic Collections describes the key role the Harmer family played in the famous Post Office Mauritius issue.








       Harmers understands the special bond between a stamp collector and their collection. Selling the material that one is so passionate about is difficult, but once built, the collection often lies seldom appreciated. So many of our clients have been torn by such a dilemma and asked our help in finding a solution.

     The most robust option is a virtual presentation of the collection. This publication is authored in conjunction with a philatelic specialist or a team of specialists depending upon the collection, with documentation of the collection and anecdotal stories and photographs, provided by friends, family or the collector themselves. The Video versions can contain interviews and family video shots.

     This is a wonderful way of keeping the essence of the collections, without the burden of storing and maintaining the actual collection.

     This Now all family members and friends can have a memento of a treasured collection and the collector.

     The stamp collector can have duplicate bound volumes of their collections which can be shown to friends and grandchildren without the fear of damage to the stamps.

     We can offer film, slide-show and book versions of the presentation which can be presented electronically on DVD, CD or placed on our website for the viewing pleasure of collectors world wide.

     The pricing for this service varies based upon the client’s wants and complexity of the collection. The cost much lower than you would think and can be included, or heavily discounted, when Harmers International handles the liquidation of your material.
