    does anyone know if it is possible to cash in postage stamps at the post office?

    i have a rather large amount surplus and wondered if this is possible before selling on ebay

    regards

    They are legal tender, according to David Brent a bus driver would have to accept them. Do you use a bus?

    David: In fact, a postage stamp is legal tender. A bus driver would have to accept that as currency.
    Tim: Yeah, that'd happen.
    David: Well, if he doesn't, report him.
    Tim: Yeah, I'll report him while I'm walking home.
    Gareth: Get a taxi, if you've got enough stamps.
    Dawn: Or cash 'em in at the Post Office.
    David: Shouldn't have to. Shouldn't have to.

    just phoned royal mail and they said that you can get a form to fill in and they will buy back, but they take 50% of the total for admin costs!!

    eBay here we come!!

    will just wait till april till prices go up as they will be worth 60 quid more then!!!
