At least 3, possibly all four.

I can't understand why you might think this is reperfed...



My guess is all four sides.

Traces of the original perforations are visible on the right, left and bottom. The object pictured is too dull looking to be a shaved, perforated R21P4 with a fake pen cancel added. But direct examination would be needed to compile a complete catalog of problems with the object pictured.

It's not a proof. But the only perfs that I think MIGHT be original are at the top. But you are correct in saying a direct examination is needed.

Looking at the eBay announcement, there's a picture of the back. There is a tear at the top right corner, across the top of the 4. Looks to me like someone tried to cover up the tear by a poorly attempted reperf.

More likely that the stamp was cut from a deck of cards, and later someone tried to improve the appearance. Sort of.
