Opinion.
Great Britain : Ephemera

Should the congress stamp, been printed from the original die,
then a "black print" reproduction.

Thanks for the quick response.
Considering the lack of fine line detail on the item, I strongly think it's not a "black print" reproduction.

Indeed,
a black print, would show only the stamp and not the black border, nor perforation teeth. And the paper would show indentation from the die pressure. (Intaglio)

Still interesting, I would mount these on separate pages in my albums,
amongst stamps of these series.

These look like pages from a book, possibly an auction catalog. Is there anything on the back?

Nope, they're just on those pieces of card stock.
Around that time (1929) there were many philatelic exhibitions in the UK and I suspect these were souvenir handouts.

Agree
The 5 could also be a "dummy stamp"
albeit, not seen before with black border.
