The green line on the top of the stamp indicates where the sheet was cut into panes. So your stamp comes from the top row of one of the bottom 2 panes. Although these are less common then stamps perforated on all 4 sides these are somewhat frowned upon by collectors.

Not all collectors would frown upon it, though. I think it looks nice -- except for the 2 or 3 perfs that appear to have "toning" (brown color). They hurt the overall appearance, at least to my eye.
