We are delighted to offer our long-time friend and colleague, Henk de Lange the opportunity to offer stock via our website.
 
Henk needs little introduction and many will recall the wonderful period when Henk worked at Stephan Welz in Johannesburg where he was a pillar of the Stamp Department.
 
Over the years his exposure to the Southern African philatelic world has provided a wealth of knowledge and experience which he brings to this period of trading for his own account.
 
We wish him well and hope his input here proves beneficial for all.
