I've been doing some work on this fascinating stamp.

The basic postage rate was 2½ d from 1941 but the 5d stamp did not arrive until 1948. The first set of blocks for printing the value plate were faulty and had to be replaced.

Nice presentation with lots of holes to fill, so happy hunting. I noticed that you have an example in the September, 1952 spot with a misplaced center. ACSC notes an example with the center misplaced downwards 3mm, and gives it a significant premium. Yours, however, appears to be misplaced upwards by about the same amount. It is listed as D134c in my 2014 book.
