Under du Pont’s will, 80 percent of the proceeds from the sale will go to former wrestler Valentine Jordanov Dimitrov of Sewickley and his family members. The remainder is designated for the Eurasia Pacific Wildlife Conservation Foundation, based in Paoli, Pa., which du Pont founded.
Dimitrov, 54, won a gold medal at the 1996 Atlanta Olympics representing Bulgaria. He gained notoriety in 2013 when he returned his medal to the International Olympic Committee to protest its decision to drop wrestling from the program.
The will was contested several times by du Pont family members but was most recently upheld in 2012 in local and state appellate courts. Attorneys involved in the appeal have said the last formal deadline to appeal the will expired in November.
Sotheby’s spokesman Rocha would not elaborate on the distribution of proceeds, saying only that the stamp is being sold by du Pont’s estate.
