I just wondered what the experts might think about this stamp. Does it appear to be real, please? Thanks so much for your time. I appreciate all the knowledgeable philatelists out there.

It looks quiet genuine to me. Faulty stamp with trimmed perforations.
The salmon shade from your photo.

Just a BTW, But why do you suppose it was trimmed? There was no imperf issue I could find via research.

Sometimes they are trimmed when taken off the envelope by hasty scissors...

When stamps were first collected, people were interested in keeping the design, not the incidentals such as perforations. Or, perhaps more likely in this case, it could be an attempt to manufacture a rarity. Or a child having fun.

Stamp clearly had perforation at some point as can be seen along top right edge, so it is not an imperforated or a proof.
