Hello, I am new to this sport. I got this stamp in a lot from eBay
. I would like to understand how to interpret this stamp. It was in a little holder that indicated it was a Scott #65, a hopeful 'Green Cancel?' written on it. (it looks blue to me) and it has a little check mark that says VF.
When I look at #65 on eBay
, most are not nearly as attractive as this stamp. So that is what I am wondering. What do I need to look at on this stamp? How do I evaluate it? (beyond it is 'neat' looking.)
This stamp also indicated that it was #65, but how would I know the color? bright rose, dull red, rose red, etc? If it did not have #65 on it, how would I know it from a #64?
What do you think?
