Well spotted Norm.
the same sheet. Image stolen from here.
Every one of the few existing full Vignette sheets is illustrated in the recent Frommer book on this issue, and all margins and angle of margins is totally
distinctive to each copy.
The one I had was sold to a doctor in country NSW last year for $15,000.
He spoke to me last week, so is alive and well, and this listing from Paralowie SA is a total FRAUD attempt by imoo-vabull
Some bunny will buy it at ONE THIRD real world value, and imoo-vabull will vanish with the funds before Paypal and ebay wake up to the scam.
PayPal loses $4,500+ and another good reason NOT to assume any high priced "bargain" on ebay is any such thing.
He has no other stuff for sale, and has not sold things recently.
A TOTAL Fraud and get those reports in folks.
ebay now have set up a fast new portal JUST to report suspected sellers of forged and non-existent stamps at - http://www.tinyurl.com/ebayfakes
- also found at - http://www.ebay.com/scw
- there is space for 10,000 characters in your reply, so all the relevant info can be added. Unlike most ebay complaint forms that allow just 100 characters etc.
Please take a moment to do BOTH ….. do the “Report Item” drop-down, and give a summary on the link above.
Most likely they will go to 2 different ebay staffers, and that is double trouble for the fakers.
Some staffers ignore such stuff, others are more pro-active – it is a lottery.
However several reports on any single item can be seen by all staffers looking at it, and that generally gets some action.
