4s green stamp is a remarkable Icelandic philatelic items, only 50,000 copies of which were issued. But the rarest specimen is that one, which is attached to a cover sent from Reykjavik to Hjardarholt in 1874. On private hands only two covers franked with official stamps have been recorded, the famous “Bible cover” as well as a cover with a single severely damaged 4 sk. Postijonen auction house offered 4s green stamp on cover at its sale that took place in September, 2018 and sold for an incredible price of $31,815.
