I wanted to flag up on the forum that's there's a new owner of the world's most expensive stamp, and we have the exclusive story.

He's a full-on collector (The Editor, who went to the display, was stunned) and an extremely wealthy man.

It's slightly odd, I know, but somehow I find this a strangely heartwarming story! Maybe it's because I firmly believe that philatelic items should be in the hands of collectors. (although, don't get me wrong, I also see the advantage of items being generally available for research).

Hmmm.... what's the big deal, really? I've got a bunch of stamps to go through and catalogue... I'll bet there's a dozen treskilling yellows in there... or some inverted jennys... wink

Very cool... it is nice to see it in the hands of a collector.

If there are, you MUST give us the exclusive story!

I'm sure I started a 'best find' thread at some point, but I think I'll do another one.

Adrian! You've been quoted in the Independent! (As have I, though I think the words are actually Guy's).

A friend points out she had to pretend to be a stamp dealer selling the Treskilling Yellow in a recent negotiation course! Wonder if the trainer was a philatelist...

It'll have to be the 1c magenta from June, I think.
