Surely it is one of the oldest passions in history: we are talking about rare stamps. Virtually anyone has seen at least one in his life and for many, love at first sight.

The internet and online shopping have done nothing but fuel this phenomenon, making it become today one of the most flourishing markets. There is talk of thousands (if not millions) of dollars that travel every day, with buyers able to spend crazy amounts just to take home a unique and apparently unobtainable piece around.

Rare stamps, this is worth over 20,000 euros
Today we are talking about the postage stamp from 80 cents of the Duchy of Parma, one of the most sought after copies in Italy and available in just 2,400 editions. Its history starts from 1859, when the Kingdom of Sardinia and the Empire of Austria entered the war. Thanks to the alliance with Napoleon III, the Franco-Sardinian armies liberated Lombardy. In Parma, the new sovereign decided to replace the stamps with Sardinian ones, but Napoleon III did not agree and decided to issue a new provisional series.
