Please help me identify this stamp!

WM1 Watermark. Unused, one star (*), but a little bit dirty and tortured.

In stampworld.com, I think, is the Stamp one of them: "1856 -1865 Christopher Columbus - Santiago Print, Impressions Worn & Blurred: 8, 8a, 8b, 8c"....but which one?

I don't think this is the wmk,It looks more like some mark on the back.
The WMK is 9mm X 7mm.Did you put the stamp in water to reveal the WMK?
The numeral 5 should stand out.Correction your stamp is gummed
So hold it up to a bright light a take a pic from the back..

No, I dont put it in Water. Yes, I know it is gummed, but afraid it isn't in two star (**) condition.

OK: we now see better, The upper part of the five is just on the border,
FA5-2 as you indicated. Scott no.9.Which colour? Can you take another pic of the stamp without the flash ?; or set the camera too asa 400.Difficult in these colour tones to make a definite decision...

Can you measure the height an width of the 5 in mm?The top of the five is on the border a little bit over the top.,so I think it's possible to get a certain height measurement.I'm thinking about FE5-2...Type 13

Deltaboxx; I think this stamp is a good candidate for the last Santiago printing of 1866-67.The height of the Wmk can exclude the earlier printings;as well as the shape of the 5.For the colour; it is a light rose variety..will have to look into this...
