This stamp seems to have part of the "1" of the Victoria 139 watermark.
Is this heard of?
I am interested in other's opinions.

Hi neefvr,

This looks like part of Western Australia Wmk 82 to me.

On a relook it is beginning to look like a "T" .

It has a straight line and pedestal. The bit on the L could be the arm of a T rather than the beak of a swan.

Is there lettering on a sheet "western Australia"?

I had a look at the Chartwell auction catalogue from last year and sure enough, there's a marginal block of 56 of the 1d bistre. There is lettering in the selvedge but I can only make out some letters from the photo.
