Looks like a shill bid. It isn't worth a penny.

Experienced stamps need a home too. I'd rather have an example that is imperfect than no example.
I collect for enjoyment, not investment.

Hopefully it is a shill bid and the seller is the only one out any money.

By shill bid do you mean the seller faked the bid to make it seem to be worth more than it is?

This item appears to have sold with a "Best Offer" bid. When this is done, eBay only shows the original offer price, not what was actually offered and executed. For all we know, someone could have offered $0.01 and it was accepted.

You're right, mml1942. That makes sense.
