An expert told a woman her $65,000 stamp was worthless – then ran away with it, she claims.
Jennifer Hall said her grandmother handed down the George Washington two-cent stamp which was part of a family heirloom collection.
She learned that the stamp was over 80-years-old and similar stamps sold for $65,000.
Hall told Fox 31: I got really excited.
She took the stamp collection to the Rocky Mountain Philatelic Library in Denver, Colorado, a respected stamp library where she hoped to get it appraised.
A man named John greeted her and told her that her stamp collection was worthless – then picked up the George Washington two-cent stamp and walked away.
Hall said: He said, “Ill just throw this one away because its not worth anything.”
