#151, 12 cent Henry Clay


Time for some more education:
The Scott #140 is quite rare and is usually bought and sold with a certificate of authenticity.

Obviously the seller schuylerac again found a rarity in that the original seller missed the grill on the stamp. NOT!

Once again either "chickfrdstk" or "schuylerac" added a phony grill and damaged another stamp. Uuuuggghh! See more of their fake grills here.

The seller "schuylerac" describes the following:

THE STAMP DISPLAYS A PARTIAL STRUCTURED GRILL WITH A SERIES OF GRILL POINTS IN LINEAR ROWS. IT APPEARS
REALISTIC. IT CANNOT BE MEASURED FOR DEFINITE VERIFICATION AND AUTHENTICITY AND IT IS SOLD AS IS
WITHOUT ANY IMPLICATION MADE OR SUGGESTED THAT THIS IS A GENUINE GRILL
