This picture is not very clear and taken at an angle. A scan would have been better.It looks like the frame to the left of the kangaroo is thick and very irregular. That would be a die 1 stamp.

Picture isn't much clearer. You need to use a scanner. Here is a pertinent section from an older ACSC catalog, though the pearls difference has always confused me:

The bold numeral of the left-hand stamp in your first photo identifies that as a die III (3) stamp.
The question remained whether the other stamp was from die I or die II.

So, yes there are three dies. The other differences help to identify whether the thin numeral stamp is from die I or II. Those are shown by Partime.

Again thanks for all your help. On looking at the Sg catalogue in respect of the 2d red/Scarlett (ignoring the brown/red) is the following a reflection of the sg catalogue.
Sg 63 or 63a seems to be die I with watermark type 2 (picture 5 I sg)
Sg99 seems to be die II and sg99a die III, both with watermark multiple A
Sg127 and sg127w see to be die III with watermark C of A

The photos attached have the large multiple crown as the watermark, sg 6a…the right hand one I purchased as Sg 50 Carmine, my question is.
Is the left hand one (purchased in a batch of 250 unchecked) sg 49 Carmine Pink
