Matthew Dikmans

Expert Stamps

Stamps open the door to unknown countries and cultures.

It was the exotic place names in his mother's stamp collection that stimulated the curiosity of 8-year-old Matthew Dikmans. He wanted to know more about these amazing places and cultures and started collecting stamps himself. He examined and researched each and every stamp thoroughly, and soaked up all the information like a sponge. Matthew Dikman's internationally-oriented work has taken him all over the world. In each place he went to, he visited the local post office to buy a copy of all available stamps.

Right when Matthew Dikmans started to feel the consequences of travelling too much, he came across the job opening for stamps auctioneer. He loves to work with stamps, create auctions and learn new things every day. In doing so, he always maintains an open mind, which is especially useful when dealing with bidders and sellers. He likes to speak to them to show that Catawiki is not an impersonal algorithm. In the same way, he also enthuses the many contacts from his network to offer their collections. Through doing so he always manages to succeed in compiling varied auctions, in which every collector will find something that catches their eye.
