This is one of Canada's most rare and valuable stamps. I'm sure each one is accounted for just like the inverted Jennies. Tell us more.

You really need much better images - preferably scans - of the fronts and backs of your stamps. It's really hard to comment on a blurred picture from a mobile telephone.

I would suggest it's a fake and not the first one on this forum. The easiest way to tell? At the 9 and 3 o'clock positions there are two sideways crowns. The white box around it should bow in with a nice little curve. Your lines are too straight.

try to post a scan at 1200 dpi, front and back, that would help.

Looks like a clipping, on newsprint-quality paper, from an inexpensive album page. I'm pretty sure a higher DPI scan won't improve its appearance.

The real deal is printed from an engraved plate, on a thin but good-quality machine-made paper with simulated laid lines.
