A buy-it-now lot at $1 and free shipping.
0.10 for eBay
0.33 for Paypal
0.47 for shipping postage
0.01 for envelope
That leaves 0.09 to the seller for his time and effort, but the lister is an "experienced seller" with 30949 feedback score, but what do I know!

I looked at his other items, expecting to see non philatelic stuff. Turns out he has several stamp listings some at reasonable prices.

He is embarrassing himself with this listing. Someone needs to tell him so but I won't. Too many nasty replies in the past when I've done that.

However, we gain confidence from eBay's words..."experienced seller."

Maybe he got paid $.10 to take the stamp so he has a nice $.19 cent profit.

No one has pointed out the essential fact that this is a precancel. I personally (and I doubt if I am the only one) take a slightly more liberal view of damage to precancels - provided the actual precancel is undamaged - than I would if I were valuing it as a stamp.

Good to see that it's a "mint never hinged" pre-cancel though.

And just in case you thought philately had cornered the market in optimistic vendors, how about this gem I found when looking for an Edwardian football book on abebooks?

He should get it graded by PSE. That should increase its value. :-)

Interesting terminology for a stamp. I need to remember that one.

Using that rationale, you could give Scott a justification to raise the minimum value for stamps saying the minimum cannot cover paypal fees.

The calculations above are shortchanging the seller by a whopping 4 cents! eBay commission on stamps is only 6%, not 10%.

Does Paypal really charge 33% or is that a minimum charge?

No. It's a flat 30 cents + 2.9%, which on a transaction this small makes it 33%.
