The lay-out of the seven dwarfs' bedroom?

I am skeptical that it is a test stamp

Since it appears to have water activated gum, it would be very doubtful that this is a new USPS test stamp.

New test stamps should usually have good looking perfs.

One of the reasons I made fun of it by posting about the seven dwarfs. I can really not understand hy anyone could possibly think these are teststamps. To me they look more like the kind of label my wife puts on homemade pickles. Jim, were they offered on eBay as teststamps?

Yes but the seller really had no clue what they were either.

I won the pane for $20. Kind of a "what the heck" bid.

BTW, I meant "new" as in not currently listed in Scott, rather than a circa-2017 issue. Thus the quotes.
