I found this stamp which looks to be from Great Britain with Queen Victoria.

Is this a stamp and is it list in Scott catalog?

re: Great Britain????

Doug, I believe there was also a postal wrapper with the same design. If yours is thin like a stamp, then I believe it came from 1 of those. The cards cutouts I have seen were on heavy stock paper.

re: Great Britain????

Hi,

I believe this stamp was only used on postcards issued by the Post Office.

There were three dies of this stamp with only small differences between them.

Here Doug's stamp has small fragments of an extra arch above the "L" and first "N" of "HALF PENNY" while Roy's stamp does not.

Roy's stamp is Die I first used from 1878.

Doug's stamp is Die III first used from 1889.

Stamps of all three dies were used on both thin buff cards and stout white cards.

re: Great Britain????

Doug;

Tho not worth as much, as it is not an entire, some collect these anyway. I collect many of the US postcard cut squares, because I don't care for bulky binders full of cards and covers. I don't collect covers at all tho.

So if you find it interesting, by all means add to your British collection.

Just sortin'....

re: Great Britain????

Doug, I had a similar question when I joined SOR some years ago. The advice I received from several members was "That's what blank pages are for." I now have a blank page or two in every country for which I have odds & ends.

Nice find by the way.

" .... "That's what blank pages are for." ...."

All too many collectors get bogged down by the printed pages
of an album. Remember, it is your album and should be
a reflection of your tastes and feelings.
Mounting a second copy of some stamp in the often blank space
alongside the printer's designated box, or nearby is your choice.
Or if you prefer a blank page with color variations can be inserted.
Drawing a row of boxes is your choice.
Not doing so is just as impressive if the mounting is neat
and orderly and that pleases you.
The whole emphasis is "YOU".
It's your collection and your album.

re: Great Britain????

Charlie is absolutely correct.

I've found that blank pages are a great way to start and store a reference collection especially for those stamps that have a plethora of color variations, different watermarks, plate types, and those BOB items that are not included in the standard printed album pages. All it takes is a little creativity and you can surprise yourself with what you can make. Besides necessity is the mother of all invention.
