An excellent example of an incredibly poorly reperforated match stamp.

Try to find even one perforation that is even close to "round"!

imo this is a stamp most often found at either end of the spectrum. if the color is outstanding the physical condition leaves a lot to be desired.
a picture of this example belongs in everyone's reference collection, just for laughs.

Hi Jim, I think he used a cold chisel to create the perfs....

Genuine perfs are not round anyway. Round perfs are generally fakes.
