I would have it under "dubious"
The "L" and the "G" that's not from a brass hammer, for mine.

I cannot find a hammer that matches the KG5 date, but other CDS hammers, show a thinner ring, and thin characters.
The lip of the "G" is not so heavily designed.

Perhaps solicit info from Ceylon specialists, or society, ask whether there exists a GALLE hammer that has DAY/MONTH rather than MONTH/DAY.

A forged cancel for sure I'd say.

If it is forged, what a waste of a nice $200 stamp.
Looks like a Die l ?

Just below the "20" there are smudgy marks, perhaps the offender cleaned a fiscal cancel, and applied the dubious postmark. ?

I'd agree with this.

If you've got a UV lamp, have a look and see whether it's been cleaned of a fiscal cancellation. Also, looking with low-angle incident light (like you're checking for wove or laid paper) often shows up any evidence of earlier cancels.

There's something about the stamp which makes.me uneasy.

Thanks for your input. So I will consider it maybe a forged cancel….
