1869 James Brooke Stamp... how much?

KO-SU n. story

I'd like to share an interesting story. I was once a stamp collector. This hobby dates back long before puberty. When I was in Primary 3, I swapped a Panini WWF sticker for a stamp! Yes, a Panini sticker.



I did not know much about the value of stamps, my aim was simple, I just needed to collect stamps I didn't already have. So when someone showed me a James Brooke stamp, I said ok. The boy collected Panini stickers like any Primary school-kids then.

It didn't take much persuasion, he agreed to barter away this stamp.

It just hit me that I have just acquired a rare stamp when I showed my collection to a friend.

He valued the stamp at RM200. I don't believe. Can someone verify its current value?


Just my three cents. Sisuahlai.
