Hi everyone. I need help to identify the "stamp" attached. Is it just some sort of cut out from postal stationary or could it be something else? It's printed on cardboard, nothing on the back. Any comments?

Disclaimer: I'm just a long time collector, not an expert.

From your image it does look to be an old postal card/stationary used at the turn of the 20th century. The image is of Queen Victoria and all postage with her image on it would have been removed from circulation within a year or two of her death in 1901 (to be replaced with the image of King Edward VII). It may have taken longer in the colonies to remove them. I would assume that it is at least dated to pre 1910.

Since it does look to be cut off the original cardstock/stationary. It does lower the value most of the time. Some of these printed stamps can be worth a lot even when cut from its original place of origin. I don't have a catalogue that can tell me the value, so I can't give you a true value for it. I'll leave that for the British colonies expert in this forum.

It is top notch workmanship for the time. Very nice piece.
