1.  The Penny Black

This is one of the world’s most iconic stamps. The reason for this is that, The Penny Black is actually the world’s first stamp. Penny Blacks that are rare have the value of tens of thousands of dollars.



2. The British Guiana 1 Cent Magenta

There is ONLY ONE LEFT IN THE WORLD! Creation of this stamp has actually an interesting story. All the colonies waited for the stamps to arrive from the U.K. but the boat was delayed so the postmaster created his own collection of stamps.

This stamp was sold for $9.5 on auction in New York.



3. The Penny Red

Even tho it was in a really poor condition, this was the most expensive stamp Stanley Gibbons has ever sold – $711,458. There are only nine of them in the world.



4. The Inverted Jenny

This American stamp had an error in it – the stunt plane was printed upside down. After they realized their mistake, they recalled it.

One Inverted Jenny was actually sold for $977,500.



5. The Tyrian Plum 

This stamp was issued during the reign of Edward VII, but it came out the day he died. Because of the death, these stamps were immediately withdrawn, but a tiny handful got into the market.
These stamps are valued over $130,000.
