Interesting question !
I recently read, that reading a postage stamp perforation began at the bottom, and progressed clockwise ? Dashed if I can find that commentary now.

Lets take Bosnia and Herzegovina 1906 for instance
It has differing perforations on all 4 sides, that makes it an important clarification.

So the above stamp would be (without knowing the guage)

say 11 x 11 x imperf x imperf ?

for the record......with tongue firmly in cheek:
your stamp is neither. it has been trimmed from a perforated issue. the nicks at the top right are are a dead giveaway. the right side has also had its perforations cut off. this was usually done to fit the stamp into the available space on a document.

Yeah, sadly there's a lot of this sort of stuff on eBay. "Well it has 2 imperf sides so it's a part perf!"
