I assume you already have this in your collection, but I figured
I would post it anyway for you... the color is really striking...

Color on most proofs are more intense/vivid than on the actual stamps. Believe it or not, I don't collect revenue proofs or essays. Just dealing with the actual 1st-3rd issue stamps, their cancels, and usages is enough of a time and money sink for me. It's also why I don't really do anything much with 20th-century revenues other than dabble.

Thanks for the link though.

They are seriously overpriced anyway. Proofs have been a weak market for the last 35 years, since the end of the Essay-Proof Society.
It's a shame, they are usually very attractive, and in some cases are far less expensive and easier to get than their stamp counterparts. Collectors who can't afford an R17a or a set of 1869's can still get the proofs and at least have something close.

Here is another "INLAND EXCHANGE" from eBay. Why did it sell so high? Is it doubled?

It's a fake R69b part perf made from trimming an R69c. It is absolutely WORTHLESS, but there are far too many uneducated novice revenue collectors out there hoping to win the lottery.

It is a fake for sure. Bad date, bad shade, tiny margins, the paper is certain to be wrong as well. Worth nothing.
