A LITTLE ABOUT ME

Andrew Murphy Western Australia
I have been collecting stamps since I was a young fella, with my Grand-parents , family (my loving wife Lee) and friends supporting me by saving stamps, taking me to stamp clubs and giving me some starter stamps.

My interest has always been New Zealand and for many years, I never had the money or the contacts to collect a specialist New Zealand Collection. I collected a simplified New Zealand Collection in Mint and Used. Whilst completing this my Aunt introduced me to Australian stamps and gave me a 5/- Sydney Harbor Bridge stamp, that got the Australian collection Started.

As I ran out of easy to get New Zealand stamps for my simplified collection I started trying to complete a simplified Chalon Collection. This got me hooked on the Wonderful Chalon Stamps of New Zealand and all there varieties, what a challenge to set "Complete a specialist collection of the New Zealand Chalons". Well that is where I am at, have set the challenge, and hopefully one day when Lotto is won I may complete the great challenge.


Australian States are again a Collection I would love to complete and I have this challenge as well.
