Thanks Peter.

So it appears that this stamp is better purchased when there is an accompanying certificate documenting authenticity. Looking on a popular auction site there are 32 offerings, none with certificates.

Certificates are very important, especially stamps that are scarce, there are many counterfeiters around, and many forgeries can be very difficult to detect.

I have seen a "PLNNY" stamp sold a few years ago, but cannot recall the market value.

After reading all the helpful and erudite comments, as a new member I am both impressed and thankful. I threw the stamp up on eBay on the hope that a collector with more knowledge than myself can make use of it.

From what I recall it is a scarce stamp, It must be noted though that a scarce stamp can be $20, and there are scarce stamps worth $500+.

Let us know how you went.

Rob

Very interesting finding. Congratulations.
I think is a mistake in the printing or over inked and the orange cover part of the letter"e".
If is the only one known, has a very good value.
This one deserve a certificate.
Good luck and BRAVO.
