Stamps & Postcards 


The most valuable man-made item in the world, gram for gram, is thought to be a stamp. Specifically, the 1 cent magenta from British Guiana, sold in 2021 for over $8,000,000. 

Stamps have a very specific place in the collecting world and, as a leading auctioneer, McTear’s has handled major stamp collections in the past. March 2022's auction brought many excellent results for individual stamps, albums and complete collections.
