I am guessing this unidentified eBay listing is a Scott #9. It appears the top has been recut but I've been fooled before. Am I right experts?

Thanks. In the market for a nice #7 to fill a gap in my collection and didn't want to pick up another 9!

Caper, the best solution for that problem is to buy your 7 and 9 together... like this 4-5R1L pair :) 4R1L is the only Type II on Plate 1L. There might be around 20 such Scott #7-9 combination pairs available to collectors.

That's cheating. Only one type per strip allowed.

I'm jealous. I recently acquired single 4R1L. I thought I was cool...But as a pair with Scott 9, nope....that is awesome showpiece! Nice pair.
