At Auction

Sotheby’s Treasure Auction opens December 7 with several interesting and historical pieces. One of the standout pieces is the 1840 Penny Black, which is the world’s first postage stamp with a pre-auction estimate of £4M – £6M.

If you’re looking for something a bit more affordable, head over to Goldin’s pop culture auction, where you can find sealed and graded VHS tapes from the original Star Wars films, a 1971 Diamonds are Forever VHS, and some uh, lessdesirable items.
