A set of three 1934 re-engraved 2s6d, 5s and 10s King George VI seahorse stamps in vertical pairs have auctioned at Sotheby's British Postal Museum and Archive auction (July 11).
The re-engraved pairs brought £7,200 ($10,881) to the London sale.
Seahorse stamps remain extremely popular among collectors. Their iconic design - Britannia being pulled through the ocean by a powerful team of horses - harks back to Britain's pre-war days of empire building.
The stamps were employed as Britain's high values for 26 years (1913-1939).
A set of three registration sheets from the 1918-1919 Great Britain issue came out top lot in the sale, making £192,000 ($285,978).
Paul Fraser Collectibles currently has 12 of the most famous stamp in the world in stock - this mint condition block of 12 Penny Blacks.
