- A stamp of Audrey Hepburn, who has never been officially issued, has spent 150,060 euros at an auction in Germany. The American film star's family stuck in 2001 for publishing because she did not want them to be smoking on a stamp.
The image of the smoking Hepburn was known from the famous comedy Breakfast at Tiffany's from 1961. The German post could destroy no more than fourteen million seals that had already been printed. Nevertheless, since then some of the stamps have emerged, which prove worth gold to collectors.
Hepburn (1929-1993) was a British actress who celebrated great triumphs in Hollywood. She won many awards, including an Oscar. Sixty years ago she was a true streaking star.
