The little research I have done on this has me figuring it must be a forgery. I am dealing with an estate that has a surprising amount of valuables tucked away though so I need to check.

Any direction to start in would be helpful.

Are there experts on this stamp since it is so rare who I can contact?
Any idea of value if it is real? If it is a forgery?

Thank you in advance for you time

At first glance I would say your stamp is a reprint, not an original. The illustration below is a stamp certified by the PF as genuine. It is a different shade of green from your stamp and the printing quality is finer.
