You'd think a stamp dealer would recognize ordinary selvage when he sees it...

Simple misunderstanding or intentional deception?

I doubt this person is a "dealer". More likely a collector who picks up small lots when he can and tries to dispose of what he does not want.

The person who listed has said to me - "I'm not sure figured I'd post it and let people decide from the pics." What a great business model!!

Probably the most common business model in the philatelic section of eBay.

It is obviously a fake. It doesn't have the required terminology on it.

On the other hand, it is MNH OG - it must be much rarer then!

RevHound: You're on the right track, but the really good ones say "THIS IS A RARE TEST STAMP".
