- In 1847 prepaid stamps were first introduced because paying the postman upon delivery got too time consuming.

Fred the owner said that his dad was a postal worker way back when postage was 8 cents and has had these in the family ever since. He’s hoping to get $800 – $1000 per stamp and he’s got an entire book (2$ face value) of these misprinted and miscut stamps!
The worlds most expensive stamp is an 1855 Swedish stamp printed on the wrong color paper. It sold for $2.3 million in 1996! But what are these worth?
Rick is clueless what they may be worth so he calls in Jay an expert who finds a total of 5 unique errors. Jay claims that these are pretty rare and would have a value of about 500 to 700 bucks. But that’s retail and would leave no room for the pawn stars to profit. Rick and Fred ultimately agree on $425 and the sale takes place.
