Yesterday I read on another forum that one of our members,Galeoptix
passed away recently.
Rein participated and shared his knowledge on a number of forums.
Australian,Austrian, Argentinian, Swiss, German etc etc.
He was into all aspects of stamp production but Rein's specialty
was stamp papers and watermarks.
I learned a lot from him, even though I didn't always understand
some of his finer details.

Reinier Cornelis Bakhuizen van den Brink (Rein)

Born: Leiden, Netherlands on October 14, 1947

Died : Krakow, Poland on June 18, 2021
Rest in Peace

Taught me about microprinting on Austrian stamps.
A fine fellow.

RIP

Here is Rein's website that has a lot of philatelic information on it which I just came across today while looking for something:

http://www.galeoptix.nl/fila/druktech.htm

(Perhaps someone who knows how to save websites and their information will be able to do so before anything is potentially lost.)

I am reading as much as I can from his old posts. What I will miss the most is not being able to ask him any questions.
