The British Guiana 1 cent black on magenta is supposed to be the most famous stamp in the world. There's only one of them left in the whole world and it last sold for $935,000 back in 1980 but has not been seen in public since the 1970's. Incidentally, it is the only stamp missing from Queen Elizabeth's penultimately complete British Commonwealth stamp collection. Anyone know what happened with the Dupont settlement? Be nice to know where it is now...

Phill, I agree, it's strange that this and the treskilling yellow, supposedly the two most valuable stamps on earth, are both very ugly!

She may be ugly but I wouldn't kick her out of bed for eating crackers.
