Prices may go up and down but I'd like to think the early stamps will always be highly-valued as Terry was most involved in those.


Happiness doesn't come from getting something we don't have, but through recognising and appreciating what we do have.

Now that their value has reduced to an all-time low it must be time to fill in the gaps in my collection.

I have just been though all the Discworld stamp sales and such, and can say that the early issues are not only holding their own pricewise, but many are being snapped up for ever increasing prices. Many are up by 25-50% on early 2017 values.
If any have fallen in value it is those from the last five years. I have noticed some of those sheets selling for less than retail.

Colin make the point that those original Discworld stamps produced while Terry was alive will become the most collectable and of those I guess the first set given away with the Waterstones 'Going Postal' promotional cover (and reproduced inside the cover of the first edition) will be the most collectable.  

The author's contribution make all the difference, perhaps why the more recent issues are less attractive?

These years on I am still trying to get my hands on one of each of the 'rat-nibbled' issues, perforated by Terry himself at the Bath Postal Museum.
