Wanted: MACHIN COLLECTORS CLUB CATALOGUE (Wilson)

Others might have what you need -- be specific .. you never know what is out there! But be CERTAIN you have turned "ON" your email access in your account settings, or no-one will be able to contact you. You NEVER know what members of this board have for sale. Do ASK for what you are looking for!

Wanted: MACHIN COLLECTORS CLUB CATALOGUE (Wilson)

Post by AdrianC »

Reference the Alan Wilson Machin Catalogue – I have just purchased a small collection of Machins all with AW reference numbers.

Would any members have copy of an AW catalogue who could help with the references or know of any for sale?

Your help would be much appreciated.

It is many years since the Machin Collectors Club Catalogue was referred to as the Alan WIlson catalogue, and I wasn't aware of the connection. The current catalogue may be purchased here: http://www.machins.org/

So, many of these are described as Alan Wilson Forgeries. Does that mean that all these with Wilson's name attached are fogeries?

I have looked through various sources and all I can find is that
"He was a prominent specialised Machin dealer, but strayed from the straight and narrow when he started creating varieties and selling them as new discoveries at premium prices. In the end the law caught up with him and he came clean. Apparently he reimbursed all those who bought the dodgy stamps, but many remained 'out there'. Largely it was unusual phosphor varieties"

What's the history? IS there anything else online which describes the case and the individual.
I wonder why the MCC still associates itself with his name - possibly only because he started the catalogue; I would have thought any 'right to use' would mean that you had to keep the name, but only for so long and in circumstances where such association was less desirable surely there would be a get-out clause.

I do recall PTS member correspondence about this matter years back, but do not sell Machins so did not absorb the details at all.

I do notice there is no Alan Wilson listed as a PTS members now -
