Not sure if there's anything interesting here or not I don't see anything in the Cat. about it.
It looks like something that could be a constant. Maybe and engraving slip?

Cheers, Bill

Looks like a fiber. There are others above it and to the right.

Hi rogdcam, I added another photo and yes there was a fibre laying on the stamp these were seller photos. So I took one myself
Ignore the colour difference.

Cheers Bill

Yes, looks like an engravers tool slip. And that "hair" looks like a cats, is only in the third photo, not others.

So Can I assume there should be more out there with the same mark?
Is there a sure way of distinguishing an engravers slip from a die that may be damaged during the printing process?

Cheers, Bill

The engraver's job is wholly different from the platemaker's job.

On the third photo down, it also looks fibrous-based to me. It's got a bit of a squiggle like a fiber would have and doesn't look, at least from the photo, as if it is completely straight and uniform. But hard to tell from scans. I'd recommend throwing it under a 50x and you should be able to see that.
