First Day Cover Collecting has been my hobby & passion for 52 years.

About Image

Following redundancy as a Hewlett Packard Computer Engineer, my wife and I turned my hobby into a business in 2011.

I helped set up GBFDC, The Association of Great Britain First Day Cover Collectors, in 1994 & have been the Chairman for 20 years.

Travelling to many UK stamp fairs & collectors' shops, I search for rare & interesting items & would be delighted to help you build, value or sell your collection.

You are very welcome to:
