Please help me identify this stamp. It came with a whole lot of embossed pre-printed stationary from Great Britain, but Im not convinced it is from GB. Also not sure if its pre-printed or a non-perforated stamp. No numerals on it either. Colour is a grey. Had no luck on google, but may be able to find iut more, if I could identify who the image is of. Any help would be appreciated.

Can not see it very well, but you might check Austria newspaper stamps

Agree. Austrian newspaper stamp. 1867 to 1880.

Imperforate.

Many subtle varieties. Interesting collecting sub-genre.

Scott is a good starting point. Specialty catalogues provide addtl insight.

Your sample has seen better days.

Rod...

Thx for sharing your display method. Good "inspiration". Assume you customized a Steiner template.

As previously note the base issue serves as basis for an interesting "sub collection" of varieties.

Cheers.

Calstamp,
thanks for the kind words.

No Sir, I think I am the world's only user of the free "Stamp Page Creator"
a super awkward and clunky page maker.
However over 6 years have become an expert
I can make a Steiner "lookalike" page in about 20 seconds.
That's what I did here.

An endangered species indeed.

Put me down for 9 pages. Invoiced at three minutes. No surcharge for time zone differential.

Thanks.

Thankyou all so much. I have inherited a few stamp collections, some very worse for wear and have managed to salvage many unusual stamps. Its a pity they are so damaged, but its still better than nothing and has been so interesting learning about the more unusual finds.
