Hello asmodeus,i feel that it looks wrong ,in
particular the Belfast letters seem very thick
and un-natural,the circle is also very thick,and
it touches the letters.It appears to have been altered.Despite this it is still a very nice item.

The cancel is genuine. It is just a bit over-inked.

Logic says it would not be otherwise. Who is going to take an expensive mint £5 orange and reduce its value applying a fake version of what is a common cancel on the £5 orange?
