SEEGERS, Hendrik

INFORMATION

Hendrik Seegers (1878-1956) started working for Enschedé in 1892. In 1912 he joined the Department for Monetary Material, of which he became Head in 1923. He semi-retired in 1944 when he erached his 65th birthday but did continue to work for Enschedé In 1953 he officially retired after having celebrated 60 years with the firm.

The design phase for the 1934 Dutch Crisis stamps had taken so long that there was hardly any time left to engrave the dies. This is why in the end Seegers had to work with two other engravers, Rudolf Steinhausen and Jan Warnaar, on the die for the 6c stamp.
