          MOVING ON TO QUESTION 4

          Hi there

          The correct answer is the British Guiana 1 cent black/magenta ( SG 23 ) of which only one example exists. Last on the market in 1980. See stanley gibbons Commonwealth & British Empire Stamps 1840-1970 on page 112.

          If only one stamp exists and this makes it extremely rare then one could also look at Great britain sg 266a ( 2 penny Tyrian Plum ) of which only one example exists and this I think is in the Queen's collection.

              Hello Angela

              I admit being wrong. I honestly thought that it is the British Guiana FOUR CENT!

              By the way, I have read somewhere that the current owner of this stamp is serving a jail sentence! Can anybody add substance to this? Are you allowed to sell on BidorBuy while in jail?

              Regards

                Even if he were to sell it on BoB you and I certainly could not scrape the money together to buy it, but sadly you have been knocked off your first place pinnicale. We would have to really find a stinker of a question to try to get you back to top of the class.

                  Hi Angela

                  I have a Penny Black with no margins, never before seen on BoB and will never be seen, does this count?
