I was perusing today's Kelleher auction results and came upon this 267c (Lot 379) with a 2017 PSAG certificate that was sold for $5400 with BP:https://stampauctionnetwork.com/V/V73319.cfm
The stamps value is based upon its color and it got me to researching.
I did a PF search and found that only three examples have been submitted to the PF and all three received negative certificates stating that the stamps are actually 267's.
This one piqued my interest (picture from certificate database):http://pfsearch.org/pfsearch/pf_grd...lledfrom=lkp
I decided to search Siegel's Power Search to see if they have sold any 267c's and low and behold I find the stamp from the PF database was sold twice by Siegel in the past, once in 2011 for $3900 and once in 2013 for $3900. The stamp had a 2008 PSE certificate (Graded 80) for both sales.https://siegelauctions.com/lot_grd....nwwin=q5x74m
Now I am not casting aspersions upon any of the folks involved in certifying and selling these stamps but it raises serious issues once again about colors and shades in philately and the dangers of throwing money at same.
I wonder what the odds are that the Kelleher stamp would get a PF cert?
