Unused, extra wide margins, fresh and superb; 1993 P.F. opinion states reperfed at bottom and small stained spot removed; in our opinion, the perfs are entirely genuine (correct guage and size of holes, characteristic ABNC shape) and the allusion to a removed stain spot is a delusion, possibly based on the absence of gum, which was badly disturbed when the stamp was consigned and removed by us (there never was a stain, nor has anything been removed except for some messy gum and hinges); an Extremely Fine stamp that, despite the somewhat paranoid P.F. opinion, is perfectly genuine and a gorgeous copy (no extra charge for the certificate)
