Here's an old bulk rate cover that once contained a catalog, c. 1966. Anyone remember this guy or read any of his books?

Nassau Street... A great, easy read, given to me by
T-360. The book is currently being passed around
to the members of my stamp club.

Shrub Oak, is just about 8-10 miles west of beautiful
Buchanan, New York.

All of us who are "mature" collectors should remember HH. He would be in the "Stamp Dealers and Collector's Hall of Fame" if such a thing existed. Maybe it does at the APS!

Here's a link to an article occasioned by his death at 89 years old.

Maybe this is proof that collectors live longer . . . and make for better husbands and wives!

Herman Herst, Jr is author of the book Fun and Profit in stamp Collecting that I won here on the forum along with the Apfelbaum book--all of this for making 500 posts! Great Prizes, great books!

Something like this does exist. I've seen it on the APS site. Herst is there, along with Scott and Minkus and Harris and a whole bunch of names I don't even recognize.

This was maybe six months ago, and at the time I wouldn't have
recognized the name. I'll have to go back and check.

Bob, there is a problem. You have to be deceased to be nominated to the
APS hall of fame, so P. Bruno won't be listed.

Here's the link to the APS Hall of Fame:

http://www.stamps.org/Almanac/alm_HallofFame.htm

They do have Luff Award "for Meritorious Contributions to Philately by
Living Philatelists." Nomination forms are available online.

Yes, his famous slogan, "If it's U.S.A. Stamps, See Herst First."

I checked, and Phil B. definitely not on the list.

BUT

I went ahead and nominated him pre-humously since he's such a stalwart pillar of our site.
