Hi, I recently purchased the pictured block of 15 of Egypt #6 as part of a much larger lot at auction. The placement of the rays of the sun on the watermark of the stamps does not match Scott watermark 118. Is there an Egypt specialist out there who can confirm that this is a forgery?

Thank you!

"Pyramid and star" watermark as shown on a stamp from Umm al Qiwain,with 9 rays.

Looks printed to me too.
Also the block does not look right. It looks like a reproduction of some kind.

Nice though !
