I didn't say that imperf 1d reds were worth nothing, but they're common stamps, four-margin examples of which are readily available for low prices on eBay
. "Valuable" to me means rather more than $10-15.
Yes, sorry. Maybe I used the wrong word saying "valuable". I meant with that word if it was possible to give a value to a stamp in that condition: a high value or low value it doesn't matter.
I scan this stamp, the "One Penny Red", but it was just an example of a classic stamp in this "not so good" conditions: my question was in general.
The stamp is totally ruined by the large missing part on the lower right corner. There is absolutely no value in the stamp. eBay
is not a good reference to explain how much a stamp is worth to say the least. The only proper way is to take the stamp to a dealer, or to send a scan to a dealer.
Even if your stamp is in good condition, well centred (which yours isn't on both counts) it will amount to nothing if it has a large missing part to the stamp.
And for the particular cancellation, the red Maltese cancellation is scarce not the black, and even if you had the red Maltese cancellation, again the large missing part to the stamp destroyed the stamp.
And the links you supplied, although the prices are too high for both stamps, unlike yours both stamps are very much intact.
Ok, Thank You. You answered my question: a stamp in this condition has NO value. Anyway I was referring in general, not only the "One Red Penny"
