Stamp Collectors Against Dodgy Sellers
email@example.com has ignored requests for corrections to auctions illustrating misidentified stamps. On August 24, 2002 he sold the US #24 (CV $40) shown in the center of the above image as a #21 for $61.
Two days earlier, firstname.lastname@example.org sold the US #35 ($65) with trimmed perforations shown at left as a #15 ($225) for $24.50. The designs can be distinguished by the completeness of the designs on the sides, especially the three pearls, which are present in the #15 but not on the #35.
On the same day as the above sale, email@example.com sold another US #35 ($65) with trimmed perforations, this time advertised as a #13 (CV $800). This badly butchered (although still identifiable as a #35) stamp sold for $39.12.
This stamp, and the one above, were intentionally trimmed very close to deceive bidders and confuse identification.
firstname.lastname@example.org sold yet another #65 with the perforations trimmed off on May 18, 2002. As with the above case, this was described as a #13.
