Hello.. Good Day to all.

I have been attempting to find information pertaining to this Queen Victoria 1 shilling- revenue stamp with the overprint shown. I looked through the net, and could not find anything similar. It appears to be a something like a US precancel with unusual pattern in the middle. Not sure where is the location in the inverted style writing.
I am not accustomed to seeing precancels/ overprint revenues like this from this country. Are they common with this pattern for this revenue or is it scarce?
I would appreciate any input. Thank you in advance.

Opinion.
Part of a Revenue commercial rubber stamp.

The stamps has dual use, Postage and Fiscal
There are two things going on, on the stamp, you have the manuscript cancel (scratch cancel) of 30/12/92
Then the unknown elipse and bars rubber stamp from some unknown document strike.

The only ones I see regularly, are the SEXAGENARY IR official overprint strike on these.

Thank you, Rod for your great observation and comment. I truly appreciate it. I have no idea what the value maybe, but I believe this may be a true unusual scarce stamp. I did see the IR on them as well, but never viewed before with a an elipse and bars rubber stamp strike. It is unique. I am going to send some pics to a few places to see if they ever viewed something like this as well.
Thank you!

For students of the Leewards,
the IR overprint we were discussing.
Not my image, possibly Collin's stamp?

The central letters VIR ? Victoria Regina ?

Yes, Rod. Those are the Sexagenary IR's I have seen as well. The PFoundation has a few on their certification site, however, not all sent were genuine overprints. I checked their site immediately to see if they had any similar one as well. It was interesting, they had one of their certifications was a genuine stamp, however the cancellation was not.
It makes me wonder about my own stamp. It is very unique with having cancellations in this manner. The stamp could be genuine, but not the cancellation even with the date on it.

Yes, Lioness, the Sexagenary is heavily forged.
There is a book on just this study of overprint.

A large collection of The Leewards, just sold with all the sexagenary opts, included
$2,200.

"I" being for "Imperatrix", I think. Your equivalent would be Raelene Boyle Imperatrix.

Thank you very much Geoff.
I searched without success.
My first guess was "Imperatrix" but was hesitant in case "I" for Empress of India.

Raelene was a tad before my time,
My preference would be Sally Pearson Imperatrix....I just love this gal,
She did it in London to boot.

I assume it's Queen-Empress, which would have been the style.

Saw Raelene run at the 1970 Commonwealth Games in Edinburgh!
