Trying to organize too organize several acquired stamp books and found this stamp and believe (hope) it to be a #482A type 1a Deep Rose 2c. Scott's 2011 CV $65K.

Do you think it is the stamp I think it is? Opinions/other research is much appreciated. Thanks in advance for helping. Everyone here is really nice and I enjoy the sharing of pictures and forum discussions.

We are all still in search of the deep rose. The color of your stamp looks about the carmine shade as mine. Let's see what others think.

One sure-fire way to confirm it is, of course, to get it certified. The scan and everyone's different monitors it probably going to be hard to exact an opinion. I certainly wish you the best of luck though! I love having a stamp or so that "has potential"..that's always very exciting to me!

Not even close ! The toga button would be much thicker on a 482a.

Here's a real one

Probably a 409 with a single line watermark. If not watermarked it would be a 482. When the lower edge of the toga rope extending left from the toga button is prominent compared to the top, the stamp is a type I. Also the lower right quadrant of the toga button is just a line. The toga button shown in the 482A image above is thick and prominent, especially the lower right quadrant.
