seller has listed seven bogus "Series 1940" Overprint stamps.
They aren't even close. Wrong serial number range, wrong serial number color, crappy overprint, etc... They also seem to be produced using only faulty stamps to add insult to injury.
I have notified them to let them know but they ignored the previous bogus overprint I notified them about a few months ago...
, "U S stamps revenues reference copy Scott R282 thirty dollar series 1940 used" is an example.
Adding "REFERENCE" to the auction lot title as cover is a foul.
UPDATE: The seller, Boots4222, replied back and stated, "I know that's why I am selling them as reference copies only"
Unacceptable! My issue is he ID's them as the very expensive "Series 1940" cat numbers, instead of the actual earlier series "somebody" just hand stamped. The last thing we need is a flood of weekly garbage "Series 1940" sets on faulty stamps.
