most valuable stamps in the world

Post by alsadeekalsadouk on Mon Sep 21, 2015 9:25 am

1-The Penny Black is one of the world’s most iconic stamps. Because it’s the world’s first stamp, it’s very valuable. Rare Penny Blacks are valued at tens of thousands of pounds and have increased in price for decades


2-The Two Penny Blue Stamps (1840)


The 'Mauritius Post Office Error' Stamps (1847)


Hawaii Missionary Stamps (1851)




The British Guiana 1 Cent Magenta




The Inverted Jenny
This American stamp was of a stunt plane and they printed it upside down. Then they realised what they had done and recalled it.

The Tyrian Plum

These stamps are valued at over £100,000. The Tyrian Plum was issued in the reign of Edward VII, but it actually came out the day he died. It was immediately withdrawn, but a tiny handful got into the market


The Roses Error
There was a stamp from 1978 which was worth 13p and is now worth £130,000. The quirk about the stamp is the 13p did not get printed for some reason


The Whole Country is Red
This modern stamp was commissioned by Chairman Mao to represent communism over the whole of China. But by a complete error, the designer left Taiwan in white. This was massively controversial - he thought he would be going to prison for treason. The stamp was hurriedly recalled
