The Plate Block Stamp Co. is owned and operated by Richard L. Lazorow. I have been a plate number block collector for more than sixty years and became a dealer in 1977. I still remember anxiously awaiting delivery of my twenty five cents worth of stamps as a child… nose pressed against the window… hoping the postman would stop at our house. Although my anxiety has diminished a bit over the years, my love of plate blocks has only increased as I gained more knowledge.
I began this business with a clear mission – to acquaint stamp collectors with the special joy and beauty of a plate block collection. I am still dedicated to that mission. My goal is to provide high quality stamps, fast service, competitive prices and a no questions asked guarantee on every stamp shipped.
After nearly three decades as a dealer, I am proud The Plate Block Stamp Co. has become America’s premier source for plate number blocks, maintaining an inventory of a quarter million stamps. I am also proud of my contributions to Linn’s Stamp News, Scott Stamp Monthly, Stamp Collector Magazine, and the Scott Specialized Catalogue of United States Stamps as author of articles in all of them.
To me, however, the most rewarding part of my business is experiencing the loyalty and friendship I receive from my customers. Some have been doing business with me for over twenty years, and seem like family.
As a member of the American Philatelic Society, the National Stamp Dealers Association and the United States Stamp Society I invite YOU to enjoy this hobby along with me. Plate Block collecting provides a rich learning experience. It can be something of lasting value – a legacy for you, your children and your grandchildren. Join me – ENJOY!
