Stamp Chat presenter Mr. Henry Jehan has been a stamp collector for 63 years. He began when he was 10 years old when his grandfather gave him a shoebox full of old US stamps he had accumulated in the early 1900s when working in the mailroom at Winchester Firearms.
Over the years 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.
