It will soak without any difficulty.

Looking from the front ... From the extra perforations visible at the bottom, it appears the stamp is stuck to another stamp which, when looking at the back, has been mostly peeled away leaving only the thinnest layer of paper left so the ink of the second stamp shows through.

I suspect a soaking will reveal a whole stamp on top and a very thin layer of the second stamp on the back.
