Hi Pooh

The perfin may belong to Harris Scarfe & Co, Adelaide. But I do not think they used 2/- stamps for the perfin; there may be members who know more about such perfins.

Can you turn the stamp over and take a pic on a black background?

Hi Pooh
There is actually a club or society that deals with Perfins on stamps

Unfortunately I do not have their contact details

Maybe someone on the forum has an idea
