Thanks Dudley and Txstamp!
I am going to try again to add more stamps to my plate recreation.
I negotiated back and forth with a seller on a strip of 3 stamps until I got a price I was willing to pay. A second strip I eventually passed on. I noticed at the last offer that there was a possible crease across the top, maybe to a point that it was a repaired tear at the left part of it. Have to look closely sometimes. I switched it and made an offer on a group of 3 singles that I needed to fill some holes. Awaiting the counter offer.
Here is the strip that I purchased.
It is 26-28L1L. A nice, clean, used copy.
