As the title suggests this very desirable stamp is up for sale mint, hinges but very fresh and vibrant in colour.
I would like US$500.00 $300.00 and I will pay registered post worldwide.
I would be happy to consider offers
See pictures.

Big thick hinge on the back will dissuade more than one potential buyer...I would remove it.

Thanks perf12 but I prefer to let the potential new owner do that, thus I will show it as it will be sold, and it us valued far higher than the asking price please check the following link...

What if the hinge remnant is hiding a fault though (say, a thin spot, or paper tear)? It's a nice stamp, but only worth anything like the asking price if it's sound. Would be better to remove it yourself, or at least offer a full or partial refund if the stamp does have a fault under the hinge.

For whoever removes the hinge: The remnant should come off with a drop or two of stamp lift fluid, but the gum will be further disturbed. Careful steaming will also work, but will soften and glaze the gum (possibly remove it entirely if you aren't careful). A "sweat box" might affect the existing gum the least, but could take days to loosen the hinge enough to safely remove it.

Thanks codehappy I'm happy to refund if it has any issues other than what is stated here, I just didn't want to soak the stamp and disturb the gum further, if the buyer wants me to do that I'm happy to, but I'm sure there are no repairs or tears or creases under that hinge, like I said, I will be more than happy to refund the purchase price.
Cheers

What is on the lower right corner? Is it red ink or something else?
