Hi,

I came across this stamp recently, and thought it looked interesting. Anyone seen one like it before?

According to my Scott catalogue, it exists perforated 11.5 or imperforate, but this looks it's only partially perforate. The perforated sides are 11.5, and I'd normally say the perfs were trimmed off, but the side margins seem rather wide.

Any ideas? Forgery? Printer's Waste? Real?
Thanks!

These come in all sorts of conditions,
Yours appears to be an extreme case.
It appears genuine, and possibly printer's waste.
They exist perforate and Imperforate.

OK, good to know! I know it's certainly not mentioned in Scott...is the existence of partially perforate stamps mentioned in any other catalogues?

Of course !
but only if they were issued so. perf horiz, perf vert etc.
or if a known and listed error "variety"
Stamps perforated privately.


I'd suggest stamps as yours would attract "printers waste" or "damaged"
I would have it under my "oddments" or "curiosities"
Stuff like this abounds in Cent Lith material, including dodgy postmarks.
