Philately

My father was a keen philatelist a hobby which I took over in the late 60's. I have been collecting single stamps from all over the world and also buying South African first day covers. My motivation has been to build up some sort of retirement income and finally having brought my entire collection over to the UK want to start selling them. Philately is more than mere stamp collecting and I have gained invaluable knowledge in many fields including geography, history, politics and environmental.

 
The oldest First Day Cover in my collection is one commemorating the Dutch queen, Juliana's 50th birthday issued in 1948
