Respected by whom? As usual they ask over the odds. Some years ago the company was involved in selling 'error' stamps made to order in collusion with printers of various countries stamps. Here is one a bit cheaper - http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/271265616159 - somewhat toned perhaps, but I think genuine. The SG one is a good colour and centring, I admit, but I don't think it is worth what they are asking. Watch out for forgeries of Chinese stamps.

They do have a Royal warrant, that suggests 'respected'. Admittedly they are dearer than most but there is an element of security from buying from them.
