Well y'all can have a pretend piece of it too now: https://showpiece.com/1c-magenta :laughing9:

Philatelic company Stanley Gibbons bought it, and are offering fractionalised ownership at about £100 a piece. But that's all virtual, theoretical and a bit abstract because God only knows what you're supposed to do with that concept. You don't get anything in return. I guess Stanley Gibbons see it as an 'investment opportunity' - but really, this one stamp seems to be a status symbol these days, if anything.

Still, it makes for a funny story!
