Hi All,

I got this stamp in a collection of Gibraltar. On the album page it says it is "large 2 in 1/2" variety. After checking SG I think it would be SG79a. Trouble is, I can't notice any difference. Could anybody tell me if this is the variety and also how you can tell...

Many thanks in advance,
James

Thank-you nl1947 for your detailed response. I found a similar block to yours on Google. I've been trying to compare them to my stamp but, to be honest, I can't see any difference - maybe my eye is not trained enough!

Thanks again and best wishes to all
James

I can see the difference when compared side by side, but were the image of either offered as a "stand alone," I would be unable to tell. That is why we keep Nelson around, to guide us through the morass.Big Grin

Is the "large 2" difference the same in both issues?

All the exemplars given are the black lettering issue, but the stamp in question has blue lettering, from a different issue.

You can also see that the word "Penny" almost completely vertically fills the box on the large "2" example, while the font on the other "Penny" is smaller.
