Does anyone know the story behind this stamp? It is SG 106 (at least I think it is). Why does it have a horizontal centre perferation?

Hi peterethio,

In my 1989 SG South America Part 20 I do not have a SG106. The numbers go from 103 to 108. The stamp shown is SG48 or SG49 depending on the type of overprint.

The Scott classic catalog lists a "perforated across the middle" variety for each of the 2 overprint varieties. According to the 2007 catalog:

Large "P" and wide "V" in Provisorio
42b Mint $30 Used $22.50

Small "P" and narrow "V" in Provisorio
42 Mint $4 Used $4

I am assuming the stamp was perforated across the middle to make a 1/4 centavo stamp.

I did not dig around too much on the site below but maybe the answer lies there or in one of the links:
