I have not been collecting stamps for years so helping others fill some spaces... particularly for specialised Machin.
I was collecting stamps since childhood but became serious in the early 1970's. At the time I lived in North London and my regular dealer was Libritz Stamps in New Southgate. When I started to specialise in Machin stamps I joined B. Alan's new issue service as well as regularly buying new issues at several different post offices. During the 1980's I developed a greater interest in art glass and the stamp collecting slowly faded out, I cancelled my new issue subscription around 1994. As I moved around Europe two drawers of a filing cabinet bulging with unopened new issue packets were ignored until the space was needed and I started to unwrap the stock. I did not get very far but lost all the envelopes and superfluous material recovering one drawer. Finally, I have decided to get on with it and sell the lot.
Stamps will appear here as they get sorted out and removed as they sell or get put onto eBay. Prices shown are mostly below the price paid - I am realistic and not trying to make a profit - for eBay I will bundle various lots and add a postage amount to the start price. Sorting through the entire collection again has been fun - and I hope you get to find some elusive items for your collection.
