10 January – 28th March
Like many children, John was introduced to stamps at about the age of seven. After many years of collecting stamps from all over the world, he eventually discovered First Day Covers. He collects British Limited Edition Covers, preferably with fewer than 100 being produced but up to 500 are acceptable. His ‘speciality’ is the collection of Autographed First Day Covers, featuring actors and actresses. Some have been bought from stamp fairs, dealers and online, but he prefers to send the covers to the theatres and hope they will be returned duly signed by the celebrities concerned.
