Cherrystone Auctions - German WWII Occupation Issues - February 20, 2019 - The Winterfel - February 20, 2019 World War II was by any measure, one of the most disastrous events in human history. From 1939 to 1945, virtually the entire world was at war and Nazi Germany occupied most of Europe. Hundreds of stamps have been issued and used during this awful time. The Winterfell Collection has been carefully assembled by a discerning philatelist, with a keen eye for the various overprints applied by the Nazi postal authorities over the sovereign stamps of occupied countries. There are many rarities from Estonia, Lithuania, Bohemia and Moravia, Sudetenland, Poland, Soviet Union, Kotor, Montenegro and others. Highlights are too numerous to mention, with 480 lots of used and unused singles, sets and covers. Virtually all stamps and covers are accompanied by expert certificates from the recognized authorities.

Riding for Diabetes!

This May, I will be riding for Diabetes. (click here to donate) This is my 8th year, riding for the American Diabetes Association's Tour de Cure fundraising event. Last year, StampAuctionNetwork users gave over $45,000 to support me in this effort and put me in 1st place!

This is a favorite riding photo of mine. I am near the top of the Beartooth Hwy pass between Red Lodge, Montana and the North East entrance to Yellowstone. It was June and there were still 5 foot snow drifts carved off the highway and skiers at the top!
