British Guiana One Cent Magenta displayed at the Smithsonian Postal Museum
The British Guiana One-Cent Magenta, the world’s rarest and most expensive stamp, is currently on loan to the Smithsonian National Postal Museum by its owner, world-renowned shoe designer, Stuart Weitzman.
Recently, Ambassador of the Co-operative Republic of Guyana to the United States, His Excellency Mr. Riyad Insanally, visited the Museum in Washington, DC to view the stamp. He said he was “delighted to see a bit of Guyanese history” and looked forward to the day when the stamp could be displayed in Guyana.
The One-Cent Magenta will be on display at the Smithsonian National Postal Museum indefinitely.
