Bill Longley started collecting as a child, joining BNAPS as a youth and attending his first BNAPEX convention in Toronto in 1993. As a dealer, his first show was at the Oakville Stamp Club where Bill Coates gave him one foot of table space and he sold over $2,000, much of it to Allan Steinhart. That part-time venture soon grew into full time activity as a dealer and auctioneer, leading to Longley Auctions, a public auction firm specializing in selling worldwide stamps, postal history, postcards and philatelic literature.
Bill’s volunteer work in philately includes editor of the PHSC journal, assistant chair for the PHSC Symposium, BNAPS Publicity Officer, and BNAPS book department agent. In 2021, Bill was invited to join the Vincent Graves Greene Philatelic Expertising Committee. He is also serving as the Bourse Committee Chair for CAPEX 22. CAPEX 22, the International One Frame Stamp Exhibition, will be held in Toronto in June 2022.
Bill has exhibited his collection of Uruguay’s Cifras issue, winning the Grand, Gold and AAPE award in his first attempt, also exhibiting internationally and winning an International Large Vermeil in 2006 at Malaga, Spain, and in 2007 at Bogota, Colombia. In 2021, he won a gold for a one frame exhibit on Ruggles (changeling) postmarks, qualifying and hopefully accepted for CAPEX 22. His primary interest is Canadian postal history including collections of Sandwich, UC, machine cancels, postal mechanization, 1939 airmail network, development of the postal code, breaking postal rules, certain military areas, meters and permits, postal hammers, post office publications (guides and reports), and even stamps (Postal Code, McCrae, 2c on 3c Arch).
