This duck stamp is impref on 2 sides. Is that normal or is it cut? How bad would the crease bring down the value?



Thank you in advance for you feedback and information.

Quite a lot. In "Antiques Road Show" terminology, everything is condition, condition, condition. The straight edges at left and top are normal - natural from the corner of the sheet and detract some from the value most collectors would give. It appears this is an unsigned stamp that was soaked from a license - where the license (and stamp) was folded to fit into a wallet - so while not signed, I'll bet it lacks full gum. Yeah the crease detracts, so does the damage to the lower right side perforations and the adhesion to the upper wing, which might be treatable. Serious duck stamp collectors would classify this as a space filler at about 10% catalog.

Many dealers and collectors refer to stamps like this one as "wounded ducks."

Hi, if possible would a reverse side scan be in order.

Bummer. Thanks for the info. The gum on the back seems to be intact, but maybe some is missing. It looks really good until you examine it though.

The backside has ink from other stamps that were stuck with it. The crease seen on the front is easier to see.


Any and all comments welcome.

Maybe an RW12 1945 rubbed off on the back of it?

This is RW7 issued on June 30, 1940 and was void after June 30, 1941.
