Thanks

I looked on stamp world but could not find the stamp there. If anyone knows the scott number, that would give me a starting place to do some resource

Thanks

Nice postally used stamp with the Multiple crown & Script CA
Mainly used as revenue for revenue purposes.
Must Watch out for cleaned off revenue cancels with manipulated stamps.

Collectors would be well advised to adopt caution
when "soaking" any commonwealth stamp of "Magenta" colouration.
They are oft of "fugitive" ink.

This explains the current example.

I recently read of a member using "boiling water" to soak stamps.
Use at your peril.
I consider that bad advice.

Is it supposed to be an SG 320? There is quite a bit of incentive to give it the appearance of being postally used.

I would make it either King George V
Sc#215 Wmk 3
Sc#245 Wmk 4

Both chalky paper, hence the lift of partial image.
Wax cross would suggest to me Registration (Postally used) but green ?

Otherwise maybe a Telegraph cancellation.
Chasing the Pmk has been fruitless thus far.
Cannot recall if Ceylon punctured their Telegraphs.

I think we can put the green cross down as "Re-use protection"
Sc#131

Given the shape of the crown in the watermark, this should be SG 358, Multiple Script CA, as perf12 pointed out earlier. Scott 245.

Wow! a beautiful image of the 50 rupee, Perf 12 !
I looked everywhere for one.
Thank you.

Wax Registration markings are common in Red or Blue, particularly in Commonwealth countries.

Green I have never seen, also, with the wax lines not intersecting at right angles, I remain with the opinion they are random re-use prevention.

Postal Revenue usage is a valid option, that is beyond my knowledge
I have a Ceylon booklet somewhere in my Library, unable to locate it today.

The OP should post a much better pic (High definition)of the stamp.
I am still doubtful of the cancel. The letter spacings seem quiet a bit seperated from one another in CEYLON.
One of Madame Joseph's handywork ?...
