I lived in Papua New Guinea for 23 years - from 1952 thru 1974. I attended Lae Primary A School, Kamarere Street T School, Court Street A School and Rabaul High School in Rabaul and Port Moresby High School and PNG University in Port Moresby.
I write and speak fluent Tok Pisin and have a good command of conversational Polis Motu.
I have collected only PNG stamps all my life and have acquired a very nice collection of philatelic items.
I am particulary interested in overprints and Pstamps (personalised stamps).
Every stamp held by me has been purchased from an authorised stamp dealer - or from Philip Mullins, Derek Wong or Fred Bartu - who resided in PNG during that period and purchased their stamps from the Post PNG Philatelic Section in Port Moresby, Boroko and Lae in 1994 and 1995.
I provide the best provenance trail for any seller of PNG Emergencies and Pstamps - due to the people I have purchased from, books and actual receipts from PostPNG.
To my best endeavour, I can assure my customers that all stamps I sell will be able to be authenticated by appropriately certificated valuers conversant with these types of PNG stamps. It should be stated here that the valuer shall use an appropriate objective scientific method to make such a claim - not subjective valuations attributed to experience or eyesight alone.
My system tracks every single stamp with an identifying number for each block or sheet of stamps that I sell to an individual.
One stamp from each such identifier is held by me to enable subsequent scientific comparison should such a claim be made against me.
My system also shows who I purchased the stamp/stamps from, originally.
This unique system will prevent substitution of a stamp/stamps in order to defraud me at some time in the future.
Are some PNG stamps targetted by fraudsters who copy rare and/or expensive isues with expensive modern printing machines?
YES - PARTICULARLY OVERPRINTS THAT USE THE ORIGINAL STAMP OVERPRINTED WITH A SOLID BLACK BLOCK OR A STRIKE-THROUGH. ALL MY STAMPS ARE GENUINE. HOWEVER, ANALYSIS USING FTIR/ATR SCIENTIFIC TECHNIQUES CAN PROVE THIS BEYOND ALL DOUBT. HOWEVER, THIS IS EXPENSIVE - ABOUT $200 PER STAMP ANALYSIS. PLEASE ENQUIRE IF YOU REQUIRE THIS SERVICE. PLEASE NOTE THAT I HAVE ALREADY PAID FOR SOME STAMP VERIFICATIONS USING THIS SCIENTIFIC METHOD FOR SHEETS OF STAMPS. FOR THESE FEW EXAMPLES, I CAN OFFER A CERTIFICATE SHOWING THE RESULTS FOR A COST OF $35 EACH (GOOD FOR VERY EXPENSIVE BLOCKS OF FOUR WITH APPROPRIATE KAPULS).
Do you guarantee that all stamps despatched via Australia Post shall reach their destination?
THERE IS NO WAY THAT GUARANTEE CAN BE OFFERED TO MY CUSTOMERS. YOU NEED TO INSURE YOURSELF AGAINST POSTAL LOSS WITH YOUR OWN INSURANCE. WE HAVE NEVER HAD A POSTAL LOSS IN HUNDREDS OF TRANSACTIONS TO DATE.
