5 ultimate stamp rarities

5 ultimate stamp rarities

The ultimate in rarity is unique

Dear fellow collector

Imagine owning something so rare...

...It is the only one that exists in the world.

Well, you can today.

Because I have 5 unique stamps available.

Just for you.

Their investment merit is obvious.

If another collector wants the stamp, they can only get it from you.

I've seen moments where the owner literally names their price.

Imagine that.

Ayn Rand, the author and stamp collector, once said:

"The pursuit of the unique, the unusual, the different, the rare is the motive power of stamp collecting. It endows the hobby with the suspense and excitement of a treasure hunt."

Without further ado here are the 5 unique items I have for you today:

Leeward Islands 1921-32 £1 black/red Specimen variety, SG80a

No alt text provided for this image

Technical description

Leeward Islands 1921-32 £1 black/red, local "SPECIMEN" overprint (type LI1), exceptionally showing variety "Break in scroll" (R1/12), SG80a.

A brilliant mint specimen example with original gum. Stunning quality and a handsome King George V stamp.

It is almost certainly unique with the variety overprinted 'SPECIMEN'.

"SPECIMEN" examples were used solely by postal administrations for reference purposes to help spot any attempted forgeries. The concept of a variety in specimen form is almost unheard of.

Despite its unique status, it is available at only a small fraction above the Stanley Gibbons listed catalogue value for the variety alone of £550.

PRICE: £650

Being unique gives these stamps extra kudos for the future.

Especially when you want to sell.

Just imagine the attention they will get at auction if they have been off the market for a few years.

Don’t miss out on these. There is only one of each.

Kind regards
