I want to see a double line watermark on the 50 c postage due. I don't expect a higher CV stamp.

Perforations are 12 so here is a photo of the front and one of the back with the stamp in watermark fluid. I don't see it...

Thank you for any help. Just working through a backlog of attempting to identify some postage dues.

Thank you for the help.

On the following copy of your image showing the stamp in fluid I marked in red around what looks to me to be an area of a watermark. Double U I think. not very distinct so I might be wrong...

Also possibly on the right margin just above the cancel, partly under the hinge.

Thank you. Upper right might be the end of an upside down double lined S?

Possibly, but that is very difficult to be sure of from a scan.

I would soak the hinge off and try again.

Yeah, wkusau is right, to get a good handle on what is in the area revcollector pointed out, the hinge should be soaked off.

I ran it through retroreveal in case that would help. No decisive transform that I saw, but this is among the more suggestive.
