I have looked for a Smiler edition to celebrate The Sun Newspaper 40th Anniversary 2009 which I believe was a limited edition of only 100.

I did see one set go on ebay for £370 beginning of April 2018 so I guess they do appear but not that often.

Are they a good investment even at that price?

Hi ,

In my opinion for what it's worth I'd say there are NO modern GB stamps are worth investing in ( perhaps imperf stamp pairs) , bearing in mind the CV's are are not really what there value is. And then you have to sell them to someone in the future who still collects stamps .

Smiler collectors are limited in numbers I would say & even the very first Smiler sheets cv£400 + have sold for under £40 . I would say buy what you collect & if you want to chance your arm at investment I would probably go for scarce QV or HV or errors .

I have bought stamps much cheaper at auction in bulk and made a few pounds maybe £20-100 over time but not really what I would call enough to supplement my pension .

Some of the big eBay sellers I'm sure make bigger money if you've got the time .

But that's only my thoughts .

Good luck finding one cheap
