The world’s most expensive stamp has been put on display in London.

The stamp is due to be sold later this month with experts suggesting it could  sell for between £6million to £12million!

The auction will take place in New York, America, on June 17.

The stamp is the only known surviving 1856 one cent magenta stamp from British Guiana, which was in South America. It has been sold at auction three times before and each time the stamp set a new world record.

The stamp was first found by a 12-year-old Scottish boy living in British Guiana in 1873.
