At the age of 7, Phoebe was given a stamp album for Christmas and the rest, as they say, is history. Owner of Victoria Stamp Company, she conducts public auctions which feature British Commonwealth stamps and postal history. She graduated cum laude from Wheaton College in Norton, MA with a degree in psychology and was the Director of the Social Service Department at a New Jersey hospital. She moved to Montana where she operated a sheep ranch with her husband. Throughout both of those careers, philately was always a part of her life. She attended national and international stamp shows and became a full time dealer in 1979, conducting her first public auction in 1995. Phoebe collects Montana territorial covers and is a member of the American Philatelic Society, American Stamp Dealer Association, Philatelic Traders Society and numerous other societies.
