Image Not Found I received a stamp album from my Great Aunt over a year ago and now just notice this stamp. I know these stamps came in booklet but the top looks like it is not perforated.

My aunt loved her stamps and wouldn't of cut the top with scissors, this is properly normal but any information about this stamp would be helpful

This is a die 3 2d, one of the commonest of the KGV's. The stem of the '2' is thicker than the die 1 or 2. Your watermark should be C of A or small multi crown.

They were made as both sheets and booklets, and the outside frame of the stamps in the booklet were cut, yours looks more as though it was just separated roughly when being used.

If you have any with an inverted watermark they are from the booklets (half were printed with inverted watermark, so very common).

A few of the die 3 have plated flaws but I can see nothing on your scan.
