About Catawiki's stamp auction
The postage stamp is believed to have been introduced in the United Kingdom in 1840, as part of a series of postal reforms. Since their introduction, the collection of stamps has been a popular pastime, fuelled in part by a continual supply of varied and attractively designed stamps, as countries sought to differentiate their stamps from those of other nations. Philatelists and stamp collectors will pay a significant price for a particularly sought-after stamp. Regarded by stamp collectors as the world’s rarest stamp, the 1 Cent Magenta stamp sold for an astonishing $9.4 million in 2014. The stamp was issued in British Guiana in 1856, reportedly because the postmaster of the British colony could not wait for stamps to arrive from the UK, due to a delay in shipping.
