I need help determining which stamp this is:



The perf are more inline with the #162 15x14



But the watermark is not. #162 is Wmk 33- This appears to be Wmk 35.



Any feedback is greatly appreciated.
Thank You.

Some irrelevant details. Perforation gauge is irrelevant. Watermark is sideways block cypher, so July 1924 coil stamp.
I do not have Scott, but from the site not to be mentioned here, Scott 214 is the 1935 photogravure 2d. Your stamp is neither. It is a 2d orange stamp).
The photogravure issue has a solid background to the portrait. Yours has shading. So, it is the surface-printed (typographed) 1924 issue.
The same site identifies it as Scott 190a.

Note, you have a rather espensive watermark variety.

Yes. Looks like 190a which is perforated 15x14.

all are (approximately). Standard gauge after gauge 14 was found to cause tearing when stamps were detached from sheets.
