Most auction houses will if asked, allow a stamp to be sent for expertization.

If you have the winning bid, ask for an extension. Might I add that it is always best to mention your plans to the auction house beforehand. Some auction houses may have a preferred authenticator but they will listen to your choice. If they get nervous, that will tell you plenty. Note that the house will send the stamp rather than allow the buyer. That way they control posession.

Best of luck.

Thanks! I can't see anything clear here because the scan is too small, but there is a very high chance is a genuine stamp!

The stamp at Kelleher has a strange white paper impression and some surface scratches, please be careful it's not a forgery (removed overprint), better ask for a certificate of authenticity from the CSS to be safe.
What is the date of the auction you see this stamp? I can not find the stamp on internet auction listings by Kelleher or Rogers
Thanks,
David

Thank you Roman.
I will follow with request for certificate from CSS to add to collection.

By the way, since you have been so kind and informative I am hoping you can help me learn something as listed in Yang.
Regarding this same stamp which is listed by Yang as NW94a and it is refered to as "char type b".
What is char type b? Does it mean character type b?
If yes, how many characters are known on this stamp and what are the differences?
Thanks again,
David

HI Dave, in my posting from Fri Sep 14, 2018 5:33 am I show both types of the overprint. For the NW94 only two types of overprints existing.

If you are able to post here a better scan I can tell you for your unoverprinted stamp if it is genuine or not.
