MOVING ON TO QUESTION 4

 

Hi there

 

The correct answer is the British Guiana 1 cent black/magenta ( SG 23 ) of which only one example exists. Last on the market in 1980. See stanley gibbons Commonwealth & British Empire Stamps 1840-1970 on page 112.

 

If only one stamp exists and this makes it extremely rare then one could also look at Great britain sg 266a ( 2 penny Tyrian Plum ) of which only one example exists and this I think is in the Queen's collection.

Hello Angela

 

I admit being wrong. I honestly thought that it is the British Guiana FOUR CENT!

 

By the way, I have read somewhere that the current owner of this stamp is serving a jail sentence! Can anybody add substance to this? Are you allowed to sell on BidorBuy while in jail?

 

Regards

 

Jacques

Even if he were to sell it on BoB you and I certainly could not scrape the money together to buy it, but sadly you have been knocked off your first place pinnicale. We would have to really find a stinker of a question to try to get you back to top of the class.

Hi Angela

 

I have a Penny Black with no margins, never before seen on BoB and will never be seen, does this count?
