The first Dutch stamp

Instead of a chat, I thought I'd make you happy this week by uploading another of my columns.

This one is on Johann Wilhelm Kaiser, the engraver of the first Dutch stamp, which you'll find by clicking either on his name or HERE.


Shown here are a reprinted die proof of the first Dutch stamp (1852, above) and a colour proof of the second Dutch issue (1864, below).


Enjoy!
