has an upcoming auction #3013 with some interesting lot descriptions, at least in the revenue section.
This stamp is described as "near very fine."
Maybe it's just me, but it seems like saying a stamp is almost
very well centered, when it fact it clearly isn't, is a weird way of describing something.
It's like saying something is almost new: it either is new, or it isn't.
Perhaps this goes with the "couple blunted perfs" comment, when clearly one fourth of all the perforations are "blunted." So, 25% is a "couple"?
