BLOCK OF STAMPS, FORMERLY HELD IN THE QUEEN’S COLLECTION, SELLS FOR £207,100


Today at Spink stamp collectors were presented with a rare opportunity to bid for an item formerly owned by Her Majesty The Queen in the Great Britain Stamps & Postal History Auction. The 1840 Two Pence Blue magnificent block of twelve, formerly part of the Royal Philatelic Collection, fetched £207,100. It was sold to an anonymous collector bidding on the telephone.
