I just heard that Max passed away yesterday evening at home from a heart attack, after a fall on Wednesday. He was 94 - only weeks shy of his 95th, and a large Birthday event had been underway for that day, on March 2.
Very sad, one of THE greatest characters ever, in the stamp business globally. Based in Melbourne, in the same Port Philip Arcade location for 60 years, Max dealt extensively all over the globe.

This postcard is well over a Half Century old.

Flanked on each side by lifelong close dealer friends Ken Duffy AO (right), and Max Stern AM. And a few stamp dealer 'youngsters' standing at back.
