so I can date the cover around 1854-55 then?


Why would you assume those years?

As mentioned earlier the stamps is an 11A. Scott specialized shows years of printing as 1853-1855. It could also be later.

Thanks stallzer, that's how I came up with the date, its just so I know where to place it in my cover album,
Its a shame I don't know more about postmark or cancel, that may narrow it down a bit...
Cheers and thanks everyone for your assistance,
What I have so far is 11A circa 1854 onwards.
The colour still has me a bit baffled, I'll have to check out my specialized for variations in colour if its in there at all.
Cheers

Here is a "as described" 10A orange brown I recently picked up at an auction. Still need to verify the auction description is correct but you can see the difference between this one and yours.

Stallzer, your stamp looks like plate position 9R2e or 2L if it's not Orange Brown.
