Came across this lot with not a single 4 margined stamp. Is this lot worth close to 1k pounds?

To me personally no.

The description marginally challenged is a real find.

The bottom right "pair" does not seem to be a pair in my opinion.

But as Always, if you like what you see, if it is the letter combination your looking for and if your wallet is big enough, anything goes.

Certainly I am not getting this lot, thought it would be interesting to see what is the max GB collectors would pay for a lot like this if they won't mind having it in their collection.

Hi pennyblackie,

I agree with Johan, the bottom right aren't a joined pair.

I couldn't imagine anyone paying more than 500 for this lot but only in the UK. The exchange rate for an Australian buyer (plus 10% GST) wouldn't make this lot a viable proposition, even at 500.

The seller has an excellent reputation so that will work in his favour.

A plating specialist might see this lot as a bargain though.

The bottom right pair is cut till somewhere to the middle, and joined at the lower part.
