At Sherwoods, we are specialist suppliers of binoculars and telescopes, and lot, lot more. For example, our range of microscopes is enduringly popular with customers.
We have microscopes which are perfect for scrutinising stamps and coins in order to verify if your latest investment is a rare example of its type and perhaps worth a small fortune. Stamp collecting, or philately, is still very popular in the UK, and it is impossible to get a more precise picture of each of your stamps than through one of our premium microscopes. Coins are more tactile than stamps and many coin collectors enjoy immersing themselves in the history of the contemporary period of their coinage. It is fascinating to imagine the type of people who held an ancient coin in their hands- perhaps a Roman soldier purchasing a loaf of bread, or a Victorian explorer buying a newspaper with the latest news from the Zulu wars emblazoned across it.
We also have biological microscopes, which are suitable for professional scientists and students alike, and allow them to look at the fascinating structures of leafs, insects and fungi. These microscopes can be an invaluable tool for children taking Biology or Geology at school, as they enable them to bring the pictures in textbooks to life by using real samples. A microscope is the perfect present for the diligent young scientist, and can help them develop into the next David Attenborough or Michaela Strachan.
