About us

Cover Story was founded by Daniel Mirecki in 1995. The principal aim of the company was to buy and sell postal history, specialising in more elusive items and the classic period, extending from prestamp. The company also deals in stamps concentrating on more specilaised collections with multiples, proofs and postmarks and also with all world topographical early postcards, again concentrating on rare cards in fine condition

Cover Story attends many exhibitions here and abroad. A full list of this years events are on the Stamp shows page.

We are happy to send out scans or photocopies as it is not envisaged that the website will contain all the stock. The full stock is also viewable by appointment in London. We also often meet clients in central London with smaller ranges of material.

We are active buyers at most of the major auctions worldwide and keen buyers privately. We are long standing members of the P.T.S.

The items on the website are only part of our stock, so if you want to see further items, please ask or visit us at one of the shows we will be attending.

We also sporadically list items on ebay under our username Newby101.
