Philately is an auxiliary science for history.
Atanasio Soriano got into collecting stamps because of a nationwide drawing contest. The best drawing would be made into a stamp. While Atanasio didn’t win (artistic skills aren’t his strongest point), the stamps he got as part of the contest did ignite his love for philately. He became a passionate collector and after his university studies, he got into serious trading, buying and selling. He’d buy big collections through online platforms, study them and sell them in parts. Atanasio also advises publishers on catalogues and other philatelist writings and is part of several philatelist communities, sharing his knowledge and discussing interesting pieces. All of Atanasio Soriano’s experience adds up to almost twenty years before he joined Catawiki. Now he learns even more every day, examining hundreds of lots for his Spanish and Portuguese auctions. He grew these auctions himself, by building trust with buyers and sellers. That’s why Atanasio is very picky about quality: only the top quality, 100% approved stamps get a place in his auctions. That way he hopes to add more value for buyers and for sellers who make their first steps in selling stamps online.
