“Probably the best World Mixture I have ever had from any dealer – certainly the most productive!”
NB, Kent
Mixtures Customer

“Absolutely five stars! Certainly the best of all the Auction houses that I have had dealings with (and I have dealt with many – Grosvenor, Spink, Gibbons, Cheshire, Colonial, Keller, Feldman, Statius, Abacus, Sparks, Sandafayre, Maresch etc). Andrew’s and his staff’s sincerity and helpfulness, the quality of descriptions, the large amount of rare and very fine material in each auction, the absence of commissions and defined bid increments, prompt dispatching of material, the enormous catalogues almost without printing errors, mix-ups and other flaws that often accompany other catalogues. In every respect and A1 job! My congratulations.”

“The most new-thinking auction-house in the world.”
From Øyvind at The Norwegian Philatelic Magazine

“What a wonderful service to stamp collectors, I have been really pleased with all my purchases from your auctions and unsold lots. Quality stamps at reasonable prices, fast friendly service, keep up the good work. Fantastic way to buy stamps for collectors to find ways to complete their sets which are missing a few stamps and build their collections. Only wish I had a few friends who collect stamps as I would highly recommend your services.”

“I have previously sold stamps and good collections through various auctions houses, not often that satisfactorily. In future UPA will be my first choice when I have stamps to move on. A very positive experience.”
VH, Norfolk
Vendor

“The stamps have just arrived which I find astonishing as the auction was only a week ago. What superb service and efficiency and my thanks go to you and your colleagues for making this happen. The stamps are, as always, in pristine condition and exactly as described. I always look forward to your auctions and regard them as four events during the year that I enjoy very much. Again, many thanks to all at UPA.”

“Thank you so very much. I have really enjoyed the Approvals and thank you for the selections which have been great.”
Approvals Customer

“On the many occasions I’ve been in touch both as a vendor and buyer, I have always encountered courtesy, patience and experience; if someone hasn’t got a ready answer inevitably there is someone else to turn to. On top of everything else, no Buyer’s Premium! Congratulations!”

“It’s a pleasure to do business with UPA – any minor issue that I have had (and I can recall only one) has been ironed out promptly and your auction catalogues always give hours of interest and, importantly, is reliable as to the quality of the stamps that one is bidding on. I look forward to many more opportunities to close the gaps in my collection.”
