About Me and the Web Site

This site is run on a private webserver directly from my home. In turn, if there is severe weather conditions in my area one can expect the site to be temporarily down at times, usually during winter months. I live in the foot hills of the Olympic mountains in Washington State in the U.S.A.. One of my other hobbies is computer programming and web site development. I went to college and learned programming back in the 80's before Windows even existed! I am a professional commercial painter by trade and I am now fully retired.

I have been a stamp collector, dealer and research specialist since the early 1980's. My research has taken me from discoveries in Egyptian philately to many discoveries in archival materials from stamp printing companies. I am the discoverer of a mass of modern day stamp forgeries of stamps printed by the former Format International Security Printers and have been published in several major stamp magazines on the subject. I am also one of the lead research specialists in the darkest sides of philately...counterfeit illegal stamps. Most fear the criminals behind the production and distribution of them. I am one of the few that is not afraid of them and will point directly with mounds of evidence at who these people are. I have been threatened by some and simply say, "bring it on!" to their rants as I will gladly expose them in any court of law should they attempt such an endeavor. To this day their threats have been meaningless. They cannot refute the evidence provided on this website and they have no grounds with which to base any claims of defamation or any other legal matter. The proof is in their own actions and in their own sales of counterfeit goods where the evidence is everywhere on the internet and fully recorded. If I say they are a criminal counterfeit illegal stamp dealer, then that is what they are due to the evidence they so ignorantly have provided in online sites like eBay and Delcampe to their own personal websites.

My web site is developed on the principal of being an almost totally free site. I host the site and all the programs are totally and legally free donations on the internet. I have made several code changes for them to suite my sites requirements. The only things I have paid for are the domain registrations and the server itself and of course I use Comcast with their highest internet speed boost so hopefully my pages open very quickly for you. I use PayPal on the various auction sites I list stamps on which I plan to start again in this year (2022).

I am an honest person and will not cheat you in any way. Please feel free to browse my site with confidence as I have made the site completely secure now. Perhaps you will find what you are looking for here. The site is developed to raise your awareness.

Good luck and good hunt in your philatelic specialties!
Best regards.
