LOLs sorry!!!!:okay:

Is it MAsjid Al Aqsa? If it includes Dome of Rock... with no doubt it's Masjid Al Aqsa... but it looks like a big house (or fort or palace) with a big tree...

It is one of the definitives from the 1946 series. I thought it was something else. As far as the building goes, it is hard to tell. the printing quality was not very good then. The series was introduced at the Palestine Philatelic exhibition in Tel Aviv in 1946.

I believe that is the only definitive issue every put out by Palestine as a whole independant nation. Definetly the last ever printed in Tel Aviv. Much history behind it. Well worth saving. You might not get rich from it, but it tells the story of a people and how so many lives changed shortly after it was issued.

Stamps carry so many stories, if only they could speak.

Most stamps with the Palestine on them are Egytian, Jordan and Israel overprints. Prior to 1946 they were Palestine Mandate and issued by Great Britain. After 1947 postage of Palestine became mostly locals.

do you mean the most expensive stamps I've bought?

A Trinidad & Tobago Stamps (King George era)... it costs me RM 50.00....

and I lost it when I moved into my new home...:offended:

But personally, the Palestinian stamp is the most valueable stamp of all..... even it's one of the cheapest stamp I have.

I love Palestine

Some stamps are worth many thousands. but, any collector will tell you that if you collect in hopes of getting rich, you are collecting for the wrong reason. Most collectors collect for interest, history and cultural appreciation. each stamp is a story and a lesson.

Many collectors specialize either by topic, country, era etc. I was a general collection, a little of everything. although I had some side topical collections USA confederate states stamps of 1860-65, horses, Russia, Poland and Lithuania.

Age has very little to do with the value. some error printings are quite valuable and new. While some very old stamps have little value.

It is the scaricity and demand that determines value. The most valuable ones are the ones that it is known that only one still exist. the most famous is the 1885 Magenta One penny stamp from British Guiana. the highest price ever paid for a stamp is US 2.3 Million for this 1857 Swedish stamp:

the first postage stamp ever printed the Queen Victoria Penny black of 1840 is the world's oldest stamp. However, so many were printed it is still considered fairly common and an excellent copy can be bought for under $100 US often they can be found at auctions for under $10.

Quite true. Interesting history about the last owner of the British Guiana stamp:

The story of the genuine Penny Magenta, retold by senior editor Rob Haeseler in the July 3, 2000, issue of Linn's, is in itself remarkable.

A 12-year-old boy named Vernon Vaughan found the Penny Magenta in Demerara, the capital of British Guiana, in 1873. He sold it to stamp collector N.R. McKinnon for six shillings, or about $1.50.

Over the years the stamp has been owned by some of philately's greatest collectors, including Count Philippe Ferrari and Arthur Hind. In 1980 the stamp was consigned to the Robert A. Siegel firm of New York, who auctioned it for $935,000 to chemical-fortune heir John E. duPont.

In 1997, duPont was convicted of murdering a wrestler he was sponsoring. The only known British Guiana Penny Magenta remains locked in a bank vault in Philadelphia, Pa.

Perhaps a fitting end for a man who placed more emphasis on material wealth than on the value of people. In spite of DuPont's great Wealth and the mansions he owned. He will never benefit from any of it in his prison cell.
