In total, the growth in value of all my recommendations is 198% over the past 20 years.
This is a decent and stable rate of growth overall, but was curtailed by the 26% fall in value in the past five years.
Specifically, two of the rarities I recommend fell in value.
This would suggest something of a contrarian investment recommendation, although I will explain later why I do not think this is the case.
Looking at the first recommendation… 1 Recovery Play
My first recommendation is one of the greatest stamp error rarities of Great Britain.
The potential for very strong growth in value for major rarities such as this was evidenced between 2002 and 2012 when it shot up in value by four times from £10,000 to £40,000.
Since then it has fallen in value and now looks exceptional value at just £25,000.
There are 5 compelling reasons why I expect to see this famous Queen Elizabeth II stamp error rise in value again:
- On a fair value basis compared to its peers, in terms of rarity, it presents as considerably under-valued
- We have witnessed strong demand for modern stamp errors in our own sales and online auctions over the past 12 months
- A number of our competitors have approached us to make offers on our GB stamp errors, which suggests they also have keen clients interested in buying
- Prices for GB modern errors have been rising in other auctions held over the past 12 months
- With only 3 examples recorded, it is comparable to the 1976 13p Roses error in terms of rarity, which is valued at £150,000
With such evidence of a strong market, and considering the scarcity value of this error, I would be bold enough to say the chances of it going down in value are improbable.
And, here it is…
