First Day Cover can be find for sale on various prices but it’s not expensive. You can get one for less than $10. It’s not a rare stamp or one of those expensive. But since only 60,000 stamps were issued these will become hard to find and price will start going up.

Sadly design is not exactly beautiful. Since this stamp was creating targeting the world record they could have made it look more pretty or exotic. Right now only interesting thing about it stamp is it’s an odd shape stamp which put it bit better than usual postage stamps you find everywhere.

Previous Biggest stamp record was held by a Dutch postageĀ  stamp but wouldn’t find any information about it yet.
