I have collected stamps for over 60 years, concentrating for much of that time on the early British Line-Engraved issues, but latterly exclusively on Plate 5 of the 1d Black (and the 1d Reds printed from the plate), and am close to a complete reconstruction of the plate in all states. I was recently largely responsible (with Winston Hollins) for redrafting the section on Plate 5 in the 16th (2011) Edition of the SG Specialised Catalogue, Part 1, although corrections to errors in this (for which sadly the publishers are responsible) should appear in the next edition.
I have been in business as a dealer in these issues since early 2001, on my retirement from a previous career. Since then I have broadened my specialist field of expertise to embrace all GB Line-engraved issues. I am now pleased to be able to say that my stock of these fascinating issues is one of the most comprehensive on the net. I am also proud to state that I have recently been appointed as a consultant to certain respected expertising bodies.
