Stamp Collectors Against Dodgy Sellers
Stamplady99 is better known for her color misrepresentation, but she also has misrepresented design types in her favor.
Shown at left is a #35 (type 5; catalog value: $65) that stamplady99 advertised as a #31 (catalog value: $850). At right is a certified #31 with a #13 in the background. Both are type 1 designs.
All #13 through #16, as well as all #31 through #34 show three pearls at lower right. No #35s show three pearls at lower right.
