In my next life perhaps I will be wealthy and collect stamps but in this life I am content to make refrigerator magnets of stamps that catch my eye.  Lately I've been reading about Great Britain's Queen Victoria and came across this gem, an 1880 brown two shilling stamp.  I like it because it shows a profile of plump Victoria that never existed. According to justcollecting dot com, the 1880 brown was only used for five months before being scrapped, and fewer than 80,000 were available for circulation -- thus accounting for one selling for around $9,000 a few years ago.
