It's from the Guitars HQ site (Antique Vintage Guitars Info)- it's pretty reliable.

It's probably legit. I've been doing this kind of Photoshopping for some work I'm doing (laying copy onto angled, flat surfaces) and, at first glance, that stamp looks way too clean & at slightly the wrong angle. Saying that, I found this image online that probably backs up the legitimacy of that photo...

While most stamps you see look a little smudged or 95% complete, there's every chance that once in a while the perfect stamp comes along....

That's enough pointless sleuthing for one day ::)
