A large collection of antique coins and stamps were stolen by raiders who broke into a flat in Dorset.
Two men forced their way through the front door of a flat on Lower Hillside Road in Wool on 21 December.
The 62-year-old victim was left in "great distress" after the raid, during which jewellery was also taken, police in Wareham said.
"I would urge anyone offered stamps or jewellery at unusually low prices to contact police," PC Luke Davis said.
The raiders are described as white, aged around 20, of skinny build and around 5ft 7in (1.52m).
One had brown cropped hair and wore a lumber-style jacket with cream and brown checks, and the other wore dark clothing.
The large stamp collection, antique coins, cash and jewellery are said to be worth a "significant amount".
