Longtime numismatic literature dealer Richard Stockley of Canada has retired and sold his business to fellow Canadian Howard R. Engel of Winnipeg.
Congratulations and best wishes! He submitted this announcement. -Editor
I wish to inform all of you that I have sold my business, lock, stock & barrel to Howard R. Engel of Winnipeg, Manitoba, Canada. He will
continue to use the name of Richard Stockley Books. My wife and I will be retiring to warmer climes, giving up the cold and snow and carrying all
those heavy boxes. We will be moving to Belize in Central America hopefully early this fall.
It was a pleasure dealing with you, meeting you at shows (especially the RCNA Conventions) and befriending a number of you over all these years. I
will miss the discussions we had about books and other related and unrelated topics.
We will be at the forthcoming RCNA Convention in Calgary this July with selections from 2 newly acquired collections. Drop by and have a look.
I hope you will continue to support and patronize the new owner as you did me.
If you wish to contact me you can use my Gmail address at email@example.com.
Following, you will find a short biography of Howard.
Howard R. Engel recently retired (as of Jan. 2/19) as Library Technician from Red River College (https://library.rrc.ca/default.aspx) after nearly 15 years' service there and more than 32 years in the
library field. Howard collects numismatics (whether Canadian decimal, tokens, medallions, paper money, literature) and philately (mostly covers,
postal history and literature) related to the numismatic and philatelic history of his home town and province, i.e. Winnipeg and Manitoba.
He also considers himself a "67 collector" that is of Canadian Confederation memorabilia, whether numismatic, philatelic and
bibliographic, regardless of the specific anniversary (e.g. 50th, 60th, 100th, 125th, 150th, etc.). He has a soft spot for this area of collecting
since he began to do so in Canada's centennial year, 1967 when his father, Roland, gave him some of his travel change.
Howard has been active in his local club, the Manitoba Coin Club (founded 1954, incorporated 1969: http://www.manitobacoinclub.org/) since 2013 when he re-entered the hobby after a 38-year hiatus thanks to a
RCM print ad for "Canada's first gold coins" in a special issue of Maclean's Magazine featuring the election of Pope
He is a Life Member of the Winnipeg Philatelic Society (http://www.wps.mb.ca/) and maintains
memberships in the American Numismatic Association, the Canadian Centennial Collectors Club, Canadian Token Collectors and the Royal Canadian
Numismatic Association. Howard has also been a regular customer of Richard Stockley Books since 2013 when he met Richard for the first time at the
Torex Show in Toronto that fall (see photo). He is delighted to have the opportunity to take over Canada's only numismatic/philatelic specialty
bookseller as an ongoing service to these hobbies, and to keep this business domiciled in Canada. He aims to keep up the personalized service to
which you have become accustomed with Richard at the helm after all these years.
Feel free to send Howard your want lists at firstname.lastname@example.org . Let him know when
you wish to part with your numismatic or philatelic literature treasures as he is always interested in buying good material.
Howard is married to Esther G. Juce, a retired dental hygienist (since August 2016 after 25 years of scraping by) and she collects names for her
Orthodox prayer book. Much to Esther's consternation, they happen to live within walking distance of the Royal Canadian Mint's Winnipeg
Yours in numismatic literature,
