I have an album of 30 stamps made from 23 carat gold depicting designs from the tomb of King Tut. It comes with a certified authenticity certificate from the Island of Staffa and mainland Scotland and sold to Singapore, Malaysia, Brunei and Indonesia. Do you know the value and who will be interested to buy it from me.

Staffa is an island off the coast of Scotland. It is not and has never been a legitimate stamp-issuing country. What you have is a set of pretty pictures, prepared by a private company with the intent of separating people from their money. These items are often sold with 'certificates of authenticity' which are worthless. The promoters of these labels often use islands or non-existent countries to try and fool people into thinking the material they are selling was issued by some legitimate authority.
