This is it. $29 delivered for a stamp with a $120 CV. I realize there's only so much you can tell from a photo, but does it appear to be legit? The image lists a bit to starboard, but the gum is 100% intact. My subjective grade for it is VF-MNH.

Nice stamp. My opinion would be F/VF due to it being off center too much to the right.

To me this stamp is $100. I don't believe in grading differences as the current market is pricing them currently.. The stamp market is in a warped state, and I think you scored nicely.

25% of cat seems about right, a nice buy.

Thanks for the observations.

I showed this acquisition to my 18-year-old daughter. She pondered it for a moment. Then, speaking with the voice of her old, wise soul, she asked: "You paid $29 for THAT?"
