Mark’s passion for stamps started from a young age when he was given a stamp album for Christmas and a packet of stamps from around the world. These humble beginnings culminated in starting his own philately business specialising in British and Falklands Islands stamps.
With his knowledge and expertise in this field Mark has been involved in cataloguing and researching collections for some of Britain’s great houses. Although collections worth thousands of pounds are a pleasure to sell he always finds it exciting to open a schoolboy’s album and find that special rare example! One such find was a 1900 Makeking ‘Baden Powell’ 3d Blue which sold for over £600.
Mark has been fundamental in ensuring the success of our ever-expanding philately auctions.
