This is very good transaction for eBay as they will get $150- $175 from this transaction.!!
Also on top of that PayPal (eBay company) will also get commission from this sale.!!
Looks like eBay share holders are doing good because of stamp collection.!!
(Disclosure : I am eBay share holder in my personal as well as retirement account).
So do you really think eBay shareholders are benefit from this kind of transaction ?
Or it's all bogus transaction were buyer don't pay to seller and seller open case with eBay so not have to pay commission.!!
My personal opinion about this stamp that it's FORGERY because look at the margin on all sides.!!
I cannot certified that this is Forgery or Genuine because I am not expert but buyer needs to verify that. I can only give you some thing to think.!
Do you believe someone has 25 Rupees to invest in stamp in 1902, when average salary was under 5 Rupees per month.!!
I think no one has that kind of extra money to invest in stamp and keep it mint. Also no one need 25 Rupees stamp.!! It was very hard to see that stamps except you are King of England or some royal connection.!!
Also what are chances of this stamp as FORGERY ?
In past we had seen this forgery stamps available very cheap but what are chances of this forgery stamp selling as Genuine ?
Following are REPLICA stamp of King Edward sold for $7 which can be easily sold as Genuine.
Don't you think so.?
Even replica looks genuine if you compare margin on all sides of the stamp with $1750 stamp.!!
If you want to buy REPLICA or FACSIMILE from "ma-collectorshop" then click following link and you will find lot of RARE stamps. Why buy it have high price just buy it directly from him/her and apply any forged rubber stamp.!!
Do you think Replica is used to create used stamp with forged rubber stamp.?
It's your choice to think.!!
