Brunei's First Postage Stamps
These are Brunei's first postage stamps issued in 1895. I managed to get my hand on the full set recently at about $150. The catalogue price is about $220. However these are unused so they are worth less. A full set of used ones will be worth twice as much. Unfortunately my used one is only half a set and I am still building up that one though it is much harder as there are very few of these stamps which came up on the market.
There is a nice story about these stamps but I will wait until the article I wrote about it (it's in the queue) gets posted on my other sites and will link up to it.
