The stamp is said to be a "beauty" even though the perfs cut into the top! But, $10,337 postage??? Must be the super rare Chicago precancel.

The precancel catalog values it at 0.15 usd (the minimum) so it may not sell.

Must be a mistake.

The mistake would be to buy it (at all of course) and then have it shipped. I would be amused if someone local to BC bought this and tried to pick it up. Not worth the grief, though just to make a point.

The other lot they have up for bid is free shipping. So it might be just plain old human error.

I have seen this shipping problem several or more times. An eBay glitch usually.

He's really full of errors then. On his other items there are two with $1000 postage and another with over $7000 postage.
