General information to our customers

Buying and selling at Engers Frimerker is easy.

Every spring and autumn, our international public stamp auctions in Oslo (Norway) are drawing customers from all over the world.

If you have a suitable consignement or would like to know if your material may be suitable, please contact us and we will give you a free evaluation and help you through the process. We personally fetch material in Northern Europe on a regular basis, and may travel anywhere in the world to collect consignements of high value. Cash advances may be agreed upon.

You may find our conditions for buyers and sellers on the left menu. The general process is described below. Typical questions are answered in the FAQ (frequently asked questions). If you have any questions about buying or selling, do not hesitate to contact us.
