Inside Philately.co.nz is a person - here is a little bit about the person and how / why philately.co.nz has been created.
Philately.co.nz is borne out of passion and a desire to provide information and inspiration.
At an early age the author of philately.co.nz emigrated with parents to Australia in 1967.
Over a number of years moving between Australia and New Zealand.
The original emigration meant, as a young child, being separated from relatives.
During the years in Australia and New Zealand grandparents sent a package every now-and-again of used postage stamps of the United Kingdom.
This inspired what would become an interest that would span many, many years - with a focus on the postage stamps and philatelic history of New Zealand.
This to be shared with you.
Over the coming weeks and months there will be a greater selection of images and articles, including Pre-decimal, Errors and Flaws, Fiscals, Officials, Stamp Duty, Arms, and New Zealand Dependencies (including: Niue, Ross Dependency, Tokelau).
