A Tribute To Stan Davidson
It is with deep regret that I report the passing of a much respected and loved dealer, collector, and auther. The great Stan Davidson. Always the consumate professional, but also always willing to help out with the smallest problems, many, many people across this country and beyond its borders have lost a most knowledgable and kind friend. - I will always remember the big grin, and friendly banter that always awaited me...In our many, many, conversations and emails, he was always "Stan", and I was always "The Other Stan"...
Stan is well known for his vast knowledge of postcards in general, and particularly artist signed cards.
