It is with great sadness and regret that I have to report Mike Holt has passed away. Full details of Mikes obituary have not yet been published.
Mike, who had many friends and colleagues from all over the world was from Stourbridge, West Midlands, Nr Birmingham in the UK.
A well known international philatelist, in particular a renowned collector / dealer in Queen Elizabeth II Machins since 1974.
Our sympathy goes out to his immediate family, truly a sad day for all and philately in particular. He will be sadly missed.
Julia from stamp magazine sums it up by saying " This will leave a huge hole in the Machin world now.
Rest in Peace Mike.
