Providing postcard valuations is a highly specialist area, requiring in-depth expertise and knowledge of the many different collecting categories. Although the picture postcards we see today were first issued during the late s and early s, the first postcards in use in this country were un-illustrated postal stationery cards, issued by the post office from onwards. Some were privately illustrated and sent by businesses as a way of advertising their products and services. For deltiologists, or postcard collectors as they are more popularly known, the scenes, the social history and the industrial history depicted in early picture postcards provide a unique insight into how life was in a bygone era. The designs we see often range from the pre era, which is referred to as the Golden Age of postcards, right through to more modern issues. Our written postcard valuations are accurate and reliable and this service is provided free of charge, with no obligation to sell.
