Probably a thin paper variety. Such bleed-through is common with thinner paper.

re: Information about back of stamp

Thankyou, I'm trying to understand as I can't find any information on the internet, Is a bleed through when the ink has seep through to the back of the stamp. This stamp is NSW 2d sesqui stamp I have quite a few, most of the stamps I have don't have the bleed through

Hi Pooh

The 1937 2d sesquicentennial was never printed on thin paper, though there have been stamps printed on normal thick paper that has a transparent back such as the one you have shown; thus creating what looks like bleeding of the ink, but in reality it is the front showing through to the back.

As a micrometer is crucial to identifying thin paper, in the case of the 2d sesqui it isn't needed.

A bleed through is when the ink saturates the stamp, such as the one I have below, commonly known as over-inking.
