As the official publication of World Stamp Show-NY 2016, Linn's Stamp News is putting together a series of posts profiling some of the stamp dealers who will be on hand at the Jacob K.

Owner: Russell Eggert

Company’s roots: The company was started in 1979 by former owner Keith Marsh as the Stamp Center. Marsh purchased Dutch Country Auctions in 1983. Eggert purchased the company from Marsh in March 2011.

Eggert’s roots: “I started collecting as a young boy,” Eggert said. "I have always enjoyed dreaming about far off places pictured on stamps and of owning a stamp store; both dreams have come true!”

Any specialties?: Eggert said Dutch Country Auctions sells both U.S. and worldwide stamps, as well as covers, postcards, coins, currency, historical and classic sports memorabilia, and Americana. 

Dutch Country's biggest accomplishments

“One of my best strengths is developing a team,” Eggert said. “To locate, obtain and process approximately 10,000 auction lots per year requires a group of dedicated, purposeful and honest workers.”

He believes he has the best.

“I purchased Dutch Country Auctions and enjoy serving the thousands of people we work with through consignments and purchases,” Eggert said. “We are not perfect, but we strive to serve the collecting community with honesty, integrity and kindness.”
