Here is a magnified portion of the portrait. Will this be the earlier version? I don't have the cross lines on the actual stamp.

Thanks,

George

You're right George. I didn't pay attention to the small writings. Then it would be #174. But then it could be #174a i'm not sure if it's rose carmine or carmine even with the color gauge I have. Anyway it' a good value! I'm not very familiar with classical british and colonies stamps. I had a good practice when I bought a Zanzibar collection. Daniel

those are the horizontal lines.
check the watermark to see if it is the single cipher

SG # 401 5s rose-carmin goes for 300 pounds (+ 35% for well centered, lightly canceled stamp) used
1915 printed by de la rue
SG# 409 5s - bright carmine goes for 350 pounds used +45% for well centered lightley used

I see Stanley and Gibbons has more info than Scott. It's more specialized for Great Britain and Colonies.
