Listed in the Scott catalog but valued with a dash.

Presumably a rare stamp?

What do you think?

Interesting item, I vote trimmed down rouletted copy that was produced "out of square". You see this quite often on some of the valves. A legitimate copy has been on my want list for 35 years.

It would be very hard to have this much margin on both top and bottom without showing some trace of roulettes, evern if it was somewhat misperfed. I cannot recall seeing any roulettes this far off center. And the margins are not equal, the bottom is wider then the top. This stamp would require careful examination of the margins under high power.

These large values were produced in strip form, so setting the roulettes was a fairly easy task.

Yes I'm pretty sure that it's a true imperf.

I'll check it out in detail when I receive it.

I have not been able to find any other examples to compare it to, either online or in several other collector's narcotic stamp collections.
