Classic Victoria stamps were issued in the 1850s, an unused vertical strip of 4 of Victoria 1850 3d bright blue “Half Length” was sold for $94,875 during Millennium Philatelic Auctions in Sydney on October 11, 2006. It was part of Ken Barelli collection of “Classic Victoria” sets that made many new price records at this sale. Although two of the stamps have significant creases on them, the strip succeeded to fetch such an incredible sum. The price of the strip in perfect condition would be much higher!
