Alan MacGregor Philatelist Check out the website for yourself:www.rhodesia.co.za (More than 1 nomination received) Alan MacGregor Philatelist is a long-standing member of the PTS (42 years!). www.rhodesia.co.za has been deliberately designed to be easy to use. There is no registration required and a minimum number of page clicks to get to the collecting area of interest. The emphasis is on British Africa and then Commonwealth. The home page immediately shows what areas are dealt in. All stock is illustrated via thumbnails which expand into full size images when clicked, and accurate descriptions. A 'Recent Acquisition' section allows regular clients to immediately see what is new. They have deliberately resisted pressure to install an automated 'shopping trolley' or 'basket' as they (and many of their clients have told them) believe in a personal interaction. Vote now!

Empire Philatelists Check out the website for yourself: www.empirephilatelists.com This website is clear and easy to use, whether you are searching by Country, Era, SG number, condition or price. They have a good stock of Commonwealth stamps with new stock added every day. All stamps are fully described and supported by a large high-resolution image which has the added bonus of a magnify function so you can zoom in to inspect. None of the images are generic and the image you see is the stamp you get. Email communication for each step of the order is informative and setting up a customer account means you can check and track all your orders. You can place your order online or over the phone and they accept payment by card, PayPal, cheque and BACS or for larger purchases they accept payment by instalment. I am told that in December they are also going to start accepting Google & Apple pay. They clearly display their contact details so if you have any problems, can’t find what you are looking for, or just want a chat about an item, you can pick up the phone or email the guys behind this excellent website.
