Sir, do you think this is a true Scott # 519?  It's perforated 11 x 11.  I know there are forgeries.....  Thanks, Jim

Answer
Hi Jim,

 Can't tell from your photo, which is too fuzzy to be useful.  But in general, a #519 can not be accurately assessed by a photo - unless it's a bad fake.  A GOOD 519 can not be told from a photo.  You need to submit this to an expert.  See www.stampexpertizing. com.
