nystamps is posting this. The right side is clearly not parallel to left side.



Am I wrong?

You might be wrong, but the right side looks crooked as heck!

Yes, the left appears out of square with the other 3 sides.



There also be some keystone effect due to camera angle.

The perforations on the left side are mis-sharpened with some straight lines. They look like they were made with a hobby knife.

I think that both the left and the right have had at least some work done on those perfs. Possibly both sides have at least had the upper third partly reperforated.

The image looks to be an oblique photo which makes it very difficult to draw accurate conclusions.

Looks like a photo rather than a scan. Wouldn't buy it under those conditions.

The valleys of the perfs should still line up when the image is placed in some type of image software. That is where the lines should be drawn, at the edge of the valleys, not at the top of the perfs.

It is a photo, if you run your cursor over the original pic you can even see what the camera was, a Canon Power Shot SX 130 IS.

I've done a perspective correction in Paintshop Pro, using a scan from Siegel's as a comparison

nystamps 309 Perspective corrected

NYSTAMPS almost always uses a camera and had suspected the camera angle in the second post.

I tried the Srail test as soon as Al posted it but didn't post results since the camera angle was obviously not perpendicular to the stamp. But I concur that there has been some perf work. Additionally, NYStamps has recently begun to over-saturate the colors on their images (like anyone would need any more reason to suspect their listings).
