Nick was first introduced to stamps at an early age with a collection from an elderly relative and he has been a professional philatelist now for over 35 years. He began dealing whilst in his teens in the Midlands and joined first in business with his father, Norman, who is still well remembered around the auction houses. His knowledge of commercial trading has been invaluable in the establishment and everyday business of the company. His own collecting interests focus on classic British Commonwealth. When not in London, Nick may be found in Sussex with his wife and cats.
