Good evening

I found some new American stamps in an old album.
I would like to know your impression if they are original or reprints or fakes

thank you so much Simone

This is a genuine stamp, Scott #12. There is a scrape or repair at the bottom since the outer frameline is missing bottom center. If you care to show the bottom of the stamp enlarged, we might be able to determine what is going on here. Thank you.

You've posted some nice US Classics yesterday. Would love to see the album these came from. What are your plans for these?

Good morning

tomorrow morning when I go back to the office I insert all the stamps of the album are many, it seems to me that I have also seen a 64a Pigeon Blood Pink with perfect centering again with rubber; some with grid (I wanted to move it to the site already but I didn't want to do too many ads).

of these stamps I would like to sell them but I would like to have an American certificate.

I thank and greet Simone

Just to clarify, pisti's "rubber" = gum, and "grid" = grill.

For certificates I recommend the PF (Philatelic Foundation). Would like to see the 64a if you have a scan of it.
