In 1963, and after many years working as an Electrical Engineer, Herman Most decided to follow his dream of opening a business offering to others what he enjoys doing most. Stamp collecting. Working from his home, Herman quickly outgrew his space requirements (and patience with his wife Lenore), and decided to open a retail shop.

Maryland Stamps and Coins officially opened for business in 1974. David Most is the philatelic expert, with over 40 years of experience evaluating collections.
