Things could be worse
POUND FOR pound, can there be anything more expensive than a humble adhesive stamp?
The tiny square of perforated paper and its dab of glue goes up in price again by 2p and 3p for first and second class respectively.
The rises are significant but as nothing compared to the near 50-year-old British Guiana One-Cent Magenta.
The unique stamp could cost an enthusiast £12 million when it is auctioned. Think of that when you hesitate before buying a book of 12 today.
