I recently bought the above. The gum is awfully shiny and new looking considering the stamp is as almost as old as I am, and I am far from shiny and new looking. Its supposedly OG. Could it be? I know that they were printed flat plate and there won't be gum bars.

A closeup pic of the reverse side of the piece would be necessary for opinions to be worthwhile.

It should have shiny gum, the back should be a bright white.

Thanks. I looked closely and could even see slight impression marks of the design from the press. If it had been regummed the surface couldn't have the repeated pattern. (I mean I suppose it could if someone really wanted to. But the stamp isn't worth the time.) It just startled me to see it so fresh and shiny. And it was a good price.

This stamp was flat plate dry printed and line perforated 11. It was one of the last U.S. flat plate printed stamps.
