What are your plans for this stamp (keep it and then have to mark the stamp as repaired so those that come behind you know what it is or sell it as repaired)?

In my opinion it is used and speaking for myself I do not 'repair/restore' stamps; I would consider it a place holder.

Looks like a reperfed plate proof.

This "stamp" (plate proof) is and will remain a space filler even if the perforation were cut off.

If you "repair" it, it will forever carry the smear of "altered". That said, if it is a proof and has been reperfed, it is already a place filler masquerading as a stamp. Leave it be.

If you entertain the idea of repairing it, I think you would be disappointed in the results, it would need infill as the damage goes into the design. and I doubt that would be convincing beyond at a glance. There's no dishonor in having a damaged stamp as a placeholder in my book.
