    An unidentified coin is a piece of metal. An identified coin is a piece of history.

    Postage stamp sells for $8,307,000

    While the buyer paid over $8.3M for the stamp, the seller LOST (!!) $1.2M

    I'll guess the lower than expected price is a reflection of the (regrettable) diminishing interest in the hobby.
