Hello all Stamp masters,

I found this stamp on sale and it is claimed that this is a Sardinia 1854 5c trial/proof in lilac grey.

Does it look authentic from what you can see in the pictures?
Sadly I cannot provide scans.

It is a reprint of the 1854'Trial Proofs'.In other words a copy.The genuine proof types were on a smoother paper & above all; the embossed head was well defined and precise.
