Specialist in all stamp and coin collections. Call us for a valuation


Our latest auction (Sale 163) was initially scheduled for May and then postponed owing to the pandemic. Now that lockdown has eased we can go ahead with our sale at the Britannia Hotel over two days instead of one which will help us abide by the social distancing rules.


If you wish to view the auction lots at our Newcastle offices you can do so from Monday 10th to Friday 21st August (weekdays) by appointment only.

Please ensure you bring a face mask/covering with you. Gloves will be provided and these must be worn at all times during viewing.

Attending the sale

If you are attending the auction in person, face masks/coverings must be worn.

When planning your journey, please bear in mind this sale is live on the internet and we generally achieve a rate of 200 lots per hour.


Unfortunately we will be unable to offer our usual room bidder (boxed) lots which always prove to be popular with many of you.

The auction room numbers will be limited (maximum of 30 people). Therefore, we ask that bidders move in and out of the room accordingly. We understand customers may wish to bid on multiple lots but if there is a space between your lot numbers please leave the room until ready to bid again.

Corbitts are dealers, auctioneers and valuers of postage stamps, coins, banknotes, medals, cigarette cards and autographs. We have been established over 40 years and have a large and well-established clientele throughout the world.

We hold regular public stamp auctions and coin, medal & banknote auctions in Newcastle upon Tyne in North East England. The catalogues for these auctions are published on our web site roughly one month prior to the auction date.

We accept bids for our auctions in person, by post, phone, fax or email. When an auction catalogue is available you can also submit your bids online using the bid form available in the relevant section of our site.

Corbitt's Review

I have been a customer of Corbitt's for over 20 years and I keep on going back. Why? Three days ago, I visited them by appointment, to view some lots in an auction. Whilst there, I decided to buy a large coin collection and some stamps. I took the risk of buying blind, because I had a long drive home. I spent £1680. It has taken me two days to evaluate what I bought and I can only say that I am not just "a little bit happy" - I am absolutely delighted with the deal they gave me. I noticed a negative review amongst the good ones and I think that the least I can do is to try to set the record straight. These courteous and efficient people work hard to be in a position to supply the goods and the service they offer. Perhaps occasionally, they are in the middle of a valuation or a negotiation and they may seem a little preoccupied. Also, it's only natural that different people may place different valuations on similar goods at different times. I cannot recommend Corbitt's highly enough.

Stamp Valuation

I recently visited Corbitts for a valuation of some of my stamps. Corbitts gave me an excellent price and I was extremely happy with the entire service. The staff were very friendly and extremely knowledgeable too.

I highly recommend Corbitts and will be returning for all of my future valuations.

Reputable and reliable auction house for stamp collections in Newcastle.

Corbitts are a specialist stamp and coin dealer and auctioneer based in Newcastle. I have attended their sales on a few occasions, the estimates tend to be quite accurate for many lots, and generally under market for mixed boxes, which is common amongst all salerooms. They keep a number of boxes and mixed lots exclusively for room bidders at the beginning of the sale which often make many times their estimates. They sell a range of high value single items, and pages, as well as collections valued at thousands of pounds. One of the few remaining specialist salerooms in the north. Special rates are available for auction customers at the hotel where they hold their auctions. Complementary refreshments provided. Well worth a visit to find those hard to get items.

Great service and expertise! Thank you.

I’m not one to write reviews normally but on this occasion I have made an exception as I was so impressed and happy with the service I received.
I received excellent service from Corbitts, from the minute I phoned in where the lady was helpful and attentive to when I visited in person and spoke to David. He was great in helping me understand the historical background and monetary benefit of some coins that I had inherited. He was also informative and answered all of my questions on various coins regarding a gift I wanted to buy.
I did some research and found Corbitts to be very reasonable with their prices.
The shop has a plethora of coins and stamps, much like an Aladdin’s cave and David’s knowledge and passion are second to none.
