Hi there. Take a look at this Penny Red stamp. It was my fathers and now part of his estate. As the story goes, he bought a writing desk at a house clearance auction many years ago. Prior to the auction, my father inspected the desk and knew that certain models had a hidden drawer, which this one did. He won the auction and discovered that not only did the drawer contain the stamp, but also 4 Reales (pieces of eight). The stamp is not from the elusive plate 77 unfortunately.
