The New York Times broke a story today finally revealing the secret buyer of the famous 1933 Saint Gaudens, which sold for $7.6 at Sotheby's in 2002. The owner is Stuart Weitzman, of shoe industry fame. Mr. Weitzman is selling the 1933 Saint along with two major stamp rarities: the unique plate block of the inverted Jenny airmail stamps, and the One-Cent Magenta from British Guyana -- believed by many to be the world's most valuable stamp.
