Price Paid for Stamp Is Labeled ‘Obscene’

Editor, News-Register:

Regarding June 17 article, “Rare 19th Century Stamp Could Set Record at NYC Auction,” I feel if anyone could afford to pay $10-20 million for a single stamp, regardless of age, all their assets should be confiscated and given to the poor. The super-rich person obviously doesn’t need them for any useful purpose. The poor can make extremely good use of them. A $10-20 million stamp is obscene for the general state of American citizens!
