AN ANTIQUES Roadshow expert was left gobsmacked by the 'rarest' Royal item ever seen on the show.

The hit BBC One show aired its latest episode on Sunday evening as Fiona Bruce presented.

It was a special episode to mark the Coronation of King Charles III which took place on Saturday.

During the show viewers watched as expert Frances Christie inspected a sheet of stamps with the late Queen Victoria's face on them.

The black and white stamps left him stunned as she declared: "This could actually be one of the most valuable things we've ever had on the Antiques Roadshow, certainly one of the rarest."

Frances noted how the sheet of stamps was practically fully intact with just a few cut off.

She then turned to the guest and asked him how he came to have them in his possession.

He replied: "Penny Back was introduced as a method of prepayment postage.

"Until the late 1830s, postage was paid for by the recipient."

Frances then revealed that each stamp is worth between £2,000 – £3,000 each due to their mint condition.
