Grenada Newspaper Wrapper with Specimen Overprint

Can you help with this newspaper wrapper SPECIMEN handstamp?

Grenada 1957 1c green Newspaper Wrapper

Enlarged Copy
Grenada 1957 newspaper wrapper Specimen Overprint

A 1957/8 1c green Grenada newspaper wrapper with “SPECIMEN” handstamped partly across the indicium was offered on Ebay in November 2012 and again in January 2013. As far as I know the item was not sold. The handstamp was in black, sans serif type, 17mm wide and 2¾mm high.

This is the first time I have seen such a handstamp on a Grenada newspaper wrapper. I have not found any reference to this anywhere so far.

Is this a known handstamp for Grenada?

Is this item genuine?
