This is a fun thread, so time to jump in....
Lots of items on the list for me, but I think I would start with completing my Kenya & Uganda KGV set from 1922 (SG76-105), as I still need most of the higher values, of which there are 13 denominations above 5 shillings.... yikes! I didn't take the time to add up the CVs of all those stamps, but it will be something on the order of £300,000. Here is the top value of the series:
Kenya-Uganda-Tanganyika, SG105, £100 red and black, 2014 CV Unused: £120,000 (internet image)
