About Cyprus Stamps

 
 
The specialist website for Cyprus stamps, first day covers, postal history and philatelic items from the whole of the island of Cyprus.
 
Cyprus Stamps and how we started:
“We really started the site to facilitate our hobby and to complete our own Cyprus stamp collection by offloading the duplicate stamps we hold,” explains Michele who maintains the website. “It seems to have gained a regular band of followers and we’ve made some fantastic friends with fellow collectors around the world and in Cyprus too!”

Where a postage stamp is of particular interest, if we are unsure of it's reference number or if it is of a relatively high catalogue value, we will often also add an additional image of the back of the stamp. These can generally be found in the Pre-Republic category (1880 - 1960 covering Cyprus stamps issued during the reign of Queen Victoria, King Edward VII, King George V, King George VI and Queen Elizabeth II).


We've tried to make it as easy as possible for you to get your Cyprus stamps by mail order on this website - but if you have any difficulties or problems, we always welcome your comments and feedback.

This website is our very own Cyprus stamps online catalogue. Almost all of our available items are listed here, with the exception of our new arrivals.

We are constantly updating the stock levels or adding new stamps as we find them, so please visit us often and remember to add us to your list of Favourite websites.


Payment is by PayPal unless an alternative payment method is arranged with us before you place your order. Please use the Contact Us form to discuss this.
 
We use Stanley Gibbons reference numbers throughout all our listings. Please use the Search Box facility located at the top right of each page.

SEARCH TIPS using the Product Search field: 
It is possible to search for a particular stamp on this website from the Product Search box by using the (Stanley Gibbons catalogue) SG number (followed by a space) if you know it, or with general words such as: Europa, Christmas, personalities, astronomy, planets, cats, animals, bird, flowerspecimen etc or use the Thematics links situated near the bottom of the left hand column. 

The Product Search works best with a single word search - if you are looking for a special word such as "scouts" it is often better to type the search within the quotation marks as in the example shown. However, for the most simplest search of all, we recommend you just type in the year of interest! 

Read my blog article for more tips on how to use the search function to receive the results you want to see.
