Postage stamps have become one of the most important aspects of my life.

  • Over 35 years’ professional experience
  • Organised his own auctions
  • An avid collector himself
Jos Zinkstok

When Jos Zinkstok received a packet of stamps for his sixth birthday, he was not impressed. Fortunately his father was happy with the gift and immediately began collecting stamps, even becoming a postage stamp director. As a result the postage stamp association regularly met at the home of young Jos. Through this exposure, his love for stamps slowly grew – something which Jos is still pleased about to this day. He started his own collection and visited many fairs, auctions and postage stamp dealers. When his father died prematurely, it was left to him to sell his collection. That was when he discovered the trade and his trading instinct. Jos decided to start his own stamp auction. Four times a year, collectors attended from across the country because there were always good stamps to be found. This went on for 28 years.

After nearly 30 years, a new opportunity presented itself. Joining as an auctioneer in 2012, Jos brought the first postage stamp auction to Catawiki and it developed further. He has put all his knowledge and experience into the stamp auctions. His sense of presentation and eye for beautiful stamps make the auction a success. He also regularly sees old customers or well-known sellers pop up online.

I have travelled thousands of kilometres to find the most exclusive stamps.

  • Co-owner of a postage stamp auction house
  • Over 40 years' experience
  • Vast knowledge of postage stamps and coins
  • Large international network
Lutz Schmurdy

As a ten-year-old boy, Lutz Schmurdy was given his grandfather’s revered stamp collection. He was immediately hooked and set about completing the collection. His interest soon found him working at a renowned auction house in the field of stamp auctions. Lutz worked his way up from the lower echelons to become manager of the philately department and ultimately co-owner of the company. Over the years he has also travelled the world in search of the finest and rarest stamps for auctions. And with success: the most expensive collection he has auctioned went for over 1.5 million German marks.

Lutz has more than 40 years’ experience in stamp auctions, and a network that goes with all that experience. He has seen virtually all the stamps there are first hand. He now uses that wealth of knowledge to make a success of the German stamp auction. Each week Lutz puts together a varied selection with stamps from Germany, surrounding German-speaking countries and the German colonies. His network is invaluable in generating an increasingly impressive selection.
