Stanley Gibbons Group

Stanley Gibbons are a specialist stamps merchant that date back to 1856.  In 1891 they moved to the Strand in London and were granted a Royal Warrant in 1914. 

While continuing to stage regular philately auctions, more recently they became established as a PLC and acquired Noble Investments in 2013, bringing the companies Apex, Baldwin’s and Dreweatts & Bloomsbury Auctions under the same umbrella. In 2014 they acquired the dealership Mallett.
