S 1693 var SG1827a eBay described as MNH.  This is a stamp with compound perf 12.5x12 rather than regular 12.  Opened for $10 and closed with no bids.  Scott values the regular stamp at $6.  SG values the regular stamp at 4 and this variant at 5.25.  Michel makes no reference to this variant.
S 1699 M1701
SG1833
eBay described as "perf 12.5. MLH. Perf. 12.5 cost 3-5 time more, than perf 12x12.5."  Opened for $2 and three people bid it up to $5.55.  I'm troubled by this.  Scott makes no reference to the alternate perfing, and Michel indicates the two different types of perfing without showing any difference in value.  SG indicates the same value applies for used, and for mint, the standard value of 3.50 increases to 4.75 - hardly a three to five fold increase!  Scott values at $4.25.  Did these people bid way over Scott because the seller was correct, or did they bid way over Scott because of what the seller claimed?  What do you think?  :)  (July 00).
