Please take a look at this'second' being offered by a UK vendor:

https://www.ebay.com/itm/GB-SG438-PUC-1-FINE-USED-SPACE-FILLER-REF-MWP1/292527549154?_trkparms=aid%3D888007%26algo%3DDISC.MBE%26ao%3D1%26asc%3D50999%26meid%3D823cbe4f78f147f7b21fb04d7f3ded26%26pid%3D100009%26rk%3D1%26rkt%3D2%26sd%3D253565955703%26itm%3D292527549154&_trksid=p2047675.c100009.m1982

The scan looks like a crude forgery. If it were a genuine stamp wouldn't it look better than this? Any input welcome.

re: PUC One Pound on Ebay, Question

I agree. It looks like someone made a low-resolution scan or photocopy, and then practiced perforations; the lines of perfs are not parallel to the design edges. The nature of this design is that lower-resolution scans or the use of formats like JPG will introduce image artifacts such as pixellated regions or jagged or non-parallel lines.

re: PUC One Pound on Ebay, Question

I just sent the vendor a question, asked if it was a genuine copy or a reproduction. I am wondering if by 'space filler'he means 'fake'. If so he needs to come out and say so.
every detail of the black stock card shows up fine on my screen. The stamp comes across looking like a crude, almost childish forgery.

Sort of annoying when someone does this, if that's the case. Will see if he replies.
