Hello all Stampmasters,
I have here what looks like a spanish 1/2 reales stamp in black and it looks mint.

Which spanish possession or colony is it from?

What about authenticity and condition?

Thanks!
It was in a disorderly album and it is hinged.
Do you know the value of it?

I agree with Rod. The design seems Cuban, but the colour looks like a reproduction. As Rod suggests, it could have been cut out from a stamp album page.

Oh thats what you mean. literally a cutout of a printed stamp in an album...
I misunderstood. Thanks! In that case it is probably worthless.

This is a forgery maybe(but looks Genuine also) of Cuba SC 1. So it is not worthless…. (must check the paper…)
I would consider it a forgery though.Wrong letter shapes,corner ornaments,pearls ect..
Stamp next to genuine type below:

A forgery? "Looks genuine"(!!). This stamp should be blue/green. It's just a cut from an album or a magazine. Worthless. No need to check nothing.
