Could you give us a link to where you saw this stamp, or is it a type of stamp you're interested in and you want to know if there is a particular face value?

A description, at least, would help. A link, as Bobby suggests would be better.

I am not sure about fiscal stamps, but Ģ 2 1/2 can only be from the decimal period. I doubt such a value was ever put to use.
As postage stamp or to-pay label, the value certainly does not exist.

I am not sure what you mean by "2 1/2 F stamped." This might be an overprint. The F would point at Morocco Agencies (French Zone). However, such a value does not exist. (edit:) Also, it would be overprinted MOROCCO AGENCIES as well.

Maybe, you are seeing part of a cancellation. Otherwise, it may not be a British stamp.

Can you give us more information, like where did you see it, why do you think it is British, is it 2 1/2 or 2.5 or 2'6, was the number part of the stamp or overprint or part of a cancelation?

F is most often Franc. Ģ is usually pound.

To summarize, this is where we are: you want more information about a stamp for which you can offer no link, no picture, no description, no color, no perforation, no shape, and no currency, only that you think it was a Great Britain issue, and you think it was 2― of some currency, but you don't know which. So, with all due respect, you're kind of wasting everyone's time right now, including your own.

Everyone on this forum has good intentions, most are willing to help to the best of their abilities, and some people on this forum have world-class resources and knowledge. Respect them all by putting forth at least a little effort yourself, first. Give us something to work with, and no doubt you'll have an answer in a few minutes.

Let's give OP a chance to describe the stamp, or even provide a link, although not being able to find it on the internet raises the question if OP can provide a link.

Maybe, OP can also tell why OP thinks it is a GB stamp.

Sorry for using your post Don, but it really applies here!

...and that is spelt in full.
I cannot recall any currency shown on a postage stamp as F
France is Fr
China and Manchukuo is 2 and a half Fen, but in Chinese script
