Lincoln Stamp: Stolen, Found and Sold for $431,000





A rare Abraham Lincoln stamp that was stolen in 1967 and surfaced 39 years later has sold at auction for more than $430,000.

The stamped envelope was auctioned Saturday at Manhattan's Robert A. Siegel galleries.

The stamp vanished from its owner's safe in Indianapolis and turned up in 2006 at a home in Chicago, about 200 miles away. A collector notified police.
