Sold on 23 Apr 2002 to "stazy4" for $36.00 and described as:

USA Scott#91 Fine Used

The stamp was reperfed on 3 sides. It then found a new life on the RIGHT.

Educational Part:
This is what we call in the biz as a major 3 side reperf job. Too bad, as the original stamp was more impressive versus one that is too small due to the reperfing.
