1856 1-Cent Magenta Stamp
First discovered by a young Scottish boy in 1837 when he went through his uncle’s stamp collection. It passed hands until 1922 when it reached Arthur Hind, who paid $36,000 for it. It has since continued to grow in value. The stamp originally cost 1 cent. The last person to buy it was Stuart Weizman, the shoe designer, who bought it for a whopping $9.5 million.
1926 Macallan Peter Blake Whiskey
We know that good vintage bottles of wine and whiskey can cost quite a fortune, but most people aren’t aware of the fact that these can go for millions. The Macallan 1926 whiskey was aged in Sherry casks for 60 years and was originally released in 1986 for $27,600. Only a few bottles were set aside to be painted by artists Peter Blake and Michael Dillon. At a Cristie’s auction, one of these bottles was sold for $1.52 million.
