'Luxury' stamp sells with an entry-level reserve in Stockholm

Stockholm auction house AB Philea has a well-filled auction coming up next weekend (Saturday May 14) with a number of good lots from many different areas of the world.

Selling alongside a range of rare and valuable coins is this 1992 "fantastic luxury copy" of a 1990 Scott 55 cents light blue stamp.

According to its condition report, the stamp has some "natural rubber folds" from its production but these are not visible from its front.
