An 1880 5-cent special printing stamp, one of just 18 in the world, just sold for $80,000 at Siegel auction house in New York. A third of the known remaining all have errors on them. To be honest, I'm surprised it didn't sell for more!

There were so many errors in this one auction, you weren't going to get any where near owning anything without assuming a lot of zeros would be involved.
