I was a medical photographer during the 1970’s and resumed my interest in closeup-up “fun” photography when living in Hawaii taking photos of Hawaiian botanicals. Also, I enjoy recording images of my travels and home town in the Pacific Northwest.

Postal History

I collect postal history of Switzerland including perforated Sitting Helvetia, refused items of Switzerland, deCoppet razor cancels (rasierklingenstempel), and international cancels made by Güller of Switzerland.

    I am the Editor of Menelik’s Journal, the quarterly newsletter of the Ethiopian Philatelic Society. Daryl Reiber sent me scans of the Guller cancels from Ethiopia that you have from his proof book. I have information about the cancellers that you may find interesting and hopefully I hear back from you to discuss.
    Best regards,
