newp revenue cancel acquisition from APS store

Just received a parcel from the APS store, including the piece below.

It's faulty and beat up, what's the big deal?

It's an example of a printed cancel from the Andrew Dougherty Playing Card Company. While not exceedingly rare (I have several other examples of this cancel), virtually all of the examples I have ever seen of this cancel are on the 1c stamp denomination. This is the first example I've personally seen on the 3c denomination.

I paid about 35% of Scott for the stamp, and I consider that a bargain. This is a case where the cancel is far more interesting and valuable than the stamp itself.
