Opinion:
That looks incorrect, that makes it a "dated" embossing.
May we have an image of the stamp in close up please?
I need an image of the pendant curl on Her Majesty's "copper bob"
May I have the size of the envelope too, please, in mm?

Great work Rod

I have quite a few penny pink envelopes in used condition (some more used than others!!) but I wasn't aware there was so many sub-types.

Because they were the ones who invented postage stamps, the UK has the unique privilege of being the only country that does not having to put the name of their country on their stamps and postal stationery.
