Hello  This stamp is rare (Scott 482 A Tip I ???  Thank you  koncz

Answer
Hi Koncz,
Thanks for the question and the great picture.
Koncz, I wish I could tell you this was the rare 482a Type Ia, but unfortunately this is clearly a type I,
The Type Ia has much heavier shading lines on the toga button and the toga rope.
This makes yours either a Scott# 409 or just a #482 with the private Schermack perfs. Both are very common. Sorry I wish I had better news.
Thanks again for the question,
Mike
