Our presenter is Mr. Henry Jehan who is returning to Stamp Chat a 4th time to give us another talk on hidden art on stamps. Henry has been a stamp collector for 64 years. He began collecting when he was 10 years old when his grandfather gave him a shoebox full of old US stamps he had accumulated while working in the mailroom at Winchester Firearms in the early 1900s. From that beginning, Henry's interests have expanded to include the stamps of Canada, Great Britain, British Europe, and British Oceania, but the heart of his stamp collecting interests has remained with his US collection.Henry maintained his interest in stamp collecting throughout college and his 31-year career as an Army civil servant managing the test and evaluation of military equipment, the development of range instrumentation, and the acquisition of tactical satellite communications equipment. Now retired in Florida with his wife of 53 years, he continues to be an avid collector, a member of the Central Florida Stamp Club in Orlando, and a member of the APS.
Ever since the early postal experiments in the early 1960s, Henry has had a strong interest in the luminescent tagging of postage stamps. It was through this interest that he first became aware of hidden art on stamps. His last presentation on Stamp Chat addressed the hidden images that are only visible under UV light. During this Stamp Chat, he will be telling us about hidden images using another technology, the U.S.P.S. Stamp Decoder and the technology of scrambled indicia.
