VERY low train and nice block into the bargain!
Hope you get that Richard,
This is a very LOW train variety, possibly the lowest I have seen.
Yes the lowest ever to be sold. 9 train shifted stamps used just sold in another auction and reached a new world record for the common types of shifts. They sold for three hundred fifty dollars. Just a year ago I was buying them for a few dollars each. Used and about ten dollars each not used. Here are some i have posted before.
c 23c Note the worn plate lower right side.
Arrived on Friday, with an extra added bonus No the bent perfs. It has blind perfs three lines running across the middle of the stamp. Im not sure if you can see in the scans and a puntched out perf stuck to the front. I purchased it for $4.00.
Look just above the smoke you can see them when you click the picture.The little bird red ink is on one off them lol on the back is another to look for just left of the fuzz a line of blind perfs from top to bottom. This stamp has gum as well. The front pic you can see the perfs has interfered with the black smoke in two spots and you can see the extra perf paper just above the train it looks like a bump almost diamond shape but its a perf stuck on it.
No i missed it, It sold for fifteen hundred dollars.
That's quite a price for such a piece. The well-heeled make a game of such items at auction many times playing out some kind of a monetary contest. The stamp is obviously nice, but in my world not $1500. Keep looking, a low train not quite that dramatic will sell for a fraction of that price.
