About Negev Holyland Auctions

 

I began collecting stamps at age 10.  Though I started with US stamps, I soon added Israel as my sister lived there.

My specialization is the Postal Stationery of Israel.   I also collect LUNDY ISLAND and FRANCE & COLONIES.

I started dealing in 1997.    I named the business BUTTON STAMP COMPANY.   Thomas Paine, the author of COMMON SENSE lived in Bordentown, NJ.  This was the only place where he bought property.   There is a statue of him in town.  On the base is this:  I would rather see my horse BUTTON grazing in the fields of Bordentown that all the pomp and show of Europe.   As I joke, you now know you are dealing with the southern end of north-bound horse. Read More...
