This is a proof. See how part of the design is trimmed away at the bottom? That means this is from the 5 cent plate 2. No imperforate stamps were printed from plate 2, but it was used to print proofs.

ttreen,

great pick up here. suggests this is a 30P? Definitely doesn't have trimmed perfs, so 30p seems right as opposed to a trimmed 30a stamp

pisti,

cool stuff here. thanks for posting

That is the shade of a Scott 42 plate proof on card.
