Hi Guys

 

Would this have any value...? The stamps were signed by Professor JLB Smith who identified the fish as a coelacanth on 16 February 1939.

Hope they are for your sake, but regardless of value I think they are great. These are the kind of stamps I collect. Interesting intrinsic value.

Hi Jongleur

 

Thank you for the reply.

 

The only other reference i can find is the following site : The Coelacanth

 

The stamps were given to a collector by the Professor Himself, i also believe that this was the very first stamp that had the Coelacanth on it. If you had to throw a number out there in terms of value, what do you think..?

Sam

I am afraid I have no idea. Where are the stamp traders - Voldermort, Neil ? Don`t keep us waiting now.

The stamps with no signature have very little value - with the signature, would be different if it were a well known figure - JLB Smith, if memory serves I sold a signed copy of High Tide a few years back for R250.00 (after having it on BoB for monthes) Not a very well known figure unfortunately & the price reflects this.
