38 LOVELY GRID CNCL HUGE JUMBO MARGIN

The stamp on the left was altered and resold. It has found a new life on the right.

Time for some more education:
The item above has all 4 sides reperforated with the top side having been entirely redone.

New cancels have been added, most likely to make the few improvements to the back a little less noticeable from the front - except note what looks like a tear on the bottom right.
