I've recently obtained a mint block of four Monaco stamps depicting Princess Grace.
One quick look in a catalogue and I realise they might not be worth much. However…
I stumbled across a website showcasing the world's most expensive stamps and in it is they describe something very similar to what I have.
Here's the link: https://findyourstampsvalue.com/rar...ps-of-monaco
The page describes a mint block of four of these stamps in 'fresh black colour' which sold for a whopping $1400. Yikes!! The stamp shown on the page looks more dark grey than black though. Stamp catalogues also describe the stamp as being 'dark blue / grey'. And my stamps are definitely a dark bluish grey colour. See below for a scan of what I have.
So my question is, do I have stamps worth $1 or $1400?
When the site calls the stamps 'fresh black' is that philatelic speak for dark grey? or am I being too optimistic :)
Does anybody here know anything about these stamps or the auction in which they sold for that price? Any help would be most appreciated. :)
Huge thanks in advance.
