I may not be the sharpest knife in the drawer, but it kind of seems that only showing the back of a stamp in your listing is, just maybe, not the best way to sell your wares.

Or am I missing something here?

A senior moment? Opioid use while scanning?

I dunno. Very strange.

That is rather odd. He or she includes 'Read description' in their title, but the description is just a few of eBay's cookbook item specifics.

Checking their feedback and clicking on 'view item,' the few sold items I looked at all show the proper images one would expect.

Interestingly, there are 10 instances of backwards stamps in this sellers 'for sale' items. They are all Scott #R... series BoB's.

I'd guess he took photos of both front and back of each stamp, but only one loaded for some reason. It's probably a simple reason like that. Rather than speculating, have you contacted him and asked?
