Canada/Other : New Brunswick #5

New Brunswick #5, the one with the picture of the postmaster that caused it to be withdrawn, is pretty well out of my price range - I think somewhere around $6 000!! Someone has a "SPECIMEN" overprint version of the stamp on E-Bay and I'm not sure if I should bid and if I win it use it as an album filler. I'm trying to make up my mind what to do. I almost consider it to be a waste of money since I could probably use the $200 (a guess!) to spend on a "real stamp". Does any serious Canada collector want to offer a comment about how you feel about specimen stamps. I have a specimen of one of the more expensive Australia roo stamps that I tend to think of the same way I would think of a damaged stamp - replace it!!! Comments anyone?

Edit: I threw in a bid of $100 and am on at $45 with almost 4 days left, 17 bids and 12 watching. I probably won't go any higher since I'm not sure if I think it's worth more than that to me. My 2015 Unitrade lists it at $300.
Another Edit: I've been overbid already and I have no intention, I don't think, of going any higher for a stamp I really don't want.

I see there's one on Hipstamp for about $5K. Looks a little beat up to me.

re: New Brunswick #5

I eventually upped my bid s bit but got overbid when the storm took away my internet. I was actually a bit relieved!! The piece went for just over $200 and that's a bit too much for a stamps that I'm not even sure I wanted. It's a specimen stamp so it has a special "S" number so I really couldn't say I had NB#5, and who knows, I might get one one day. I never expected to have a copy of BC#1, which is more than double the CV, but I do! So who knows and then what would I do with NB 5S? No regrets!!!
