Original Queen Stamp mould to go under the hammer

Stamps display how much respect a nation has for someone who has made a world of difference either from their soil or for them directly. And one such person for the Brits is the queen of England. Sculpted by the famous sculptor Arnold Machin, the original mold designed in 1967 caught the Queen’s attention to such an extent that she declined to have it updated, too, when her effigy on the British coin was very much modified. This plaster cast has been used to print over 320 billion stamps over a period of 40 years. The mold itself is a rare auction item and is expected to come for bidding this week and is likely to fetch at least $16,320.
