Many Ebay sellers will never get awards for having high IQ, but if this genius used each of the 5 stamps on REGISTERED covers to someone, had them neat cancelled today Feb 13, kept the Registered receipts, and made those part of the auction lot, got the receiving PO to back stamp them, he'd be getting $20-$30 EACH cover
or $100 a set of 5, not $11 per sheetlet of 5.
He'd have the earliest mailed covers known.
You are assuming "he" has taken delivery of them, not just "got them promised by his local post office, on the official release date".
Listed on 13th, with dispatch promised "within 5 days of payment".
(He will be in the post office anyway, on the 18th, to pick up his order).
"He" may just have listed off the press release, after a quick chat with his local supplier (or an order on the AP website), and be "smarter" than appears.
8 Lots is an exact amount, and double face isn't an excessive profit on a print run of only 100,000.
(Or a complete fraudster .... you never really know on eBay, until you physically receive the goods
But yes, "IF" he had taken delivery, and was a sharp cookie, the Sheriffs "route to riches" is paved with gold!
(As an aside... If I ordered off the AP website, they would charge me $9 delivery, making a single booklet $14.50, versus the $14.20 charged by this vendor ..... and "one of them" probably uses real stamps !!).
