I bought this one today. I don't have it in hand yet. Hopefully the vibrant color in the pictures is accurate.

The seller accepted my offer. As you can see the stamp is over trimmed. But it fits my collection well. For me to spend hundreds of dollars on a four margin beauty of an EOB would be silly.

Stampcrow, That will make a nice addition to your color chart. The paper and ink both look fresh, and un-toned--very important. The margins aren't so important for a color specimen. Well done!

Very nice. I agree that perfect condition and margins are not everything. Congrats.

Good job stampcrow! It will be invaluable someday having it to compare to another you may run across. The rest of us just keep guessing...

I guess I would say..., no. It's somewhat duller than what my monitor shows. That's not to say it's "dull" by any other measure.

It's brighter than the OB's.
I'll scan it with some other stamps and we can have a look. Unfortunately my scanner is not very good.
