Stamps can be an alternative investment.
The world's most valuable stamp, the British Guiana, was sold at Sotheby´s s for $9.5 million in 2014.
The seller had bought the stamp in 1980 for $935,000.
There are approx. 500,000 collectors in Germany, worldwide approx. 5 million.
The price of a stamp is determined by the number of copies and how many are still available today. In addition, the number of collectors in a collection area is of great importance. The quality of the stamp is the third important criterion.
The "intrinsic value" of stamps lies in the history of the stamp or cover. Recently and due to the possibilities of the Internet, the postal history and background comes more to the forefront.
All in all, stamps are an investment with a fun factor and, if operated in the long term, can be also an "alternative investment".
