It has been a year since this story was posted and the discovery of the stamp. Still no background as to who the young man's grandfather was . Was the grandfather a known philatelist or was he a general collector. This whole story stinks .
It is like no one wants the truth to come out ,the APS sold the stamp , got their money , end of story

The stamp has not yet been sold. It will be offered for auction May 11 by Robert A. Siegel. The man who had the stamp all those years was not a philatelist; he was simply a collector of things. He had a legitimate bill of sale for the stamp from a NYC dealer. This was all revealed a year ago.

"After the theft , the block was broken into four singles, and each copy was altered to disguise its appearance. " You have to wonder if the person who broke up the block and repeforated each stamp didn't screw up on position 66 ,the still missing stamp and damaged it .
It is hard to believe that the young fellow who's grandfather had the stamp was just a collector of stuff .There has to be a story there .Wonder if the grandfather stole the stamp from a wealth collector who in turn wasn't going to call the police ,like I want to report a theft of a stolen stamp that I purchased illegally in the U.S.
