For anyone interested: Winking

- Webb's stamp is a die I stamp like Mitch's.

- Roy's nice reply card has a die III stamp.

The key difference is the presence or absence of a small white dot representing the top of a seventh arch in each of the two top corners.

I would agree if I didn't actually lift a stamp off of the paper it was on, can you do that with a card?

I ask because I don't know the answer to that question. I'm not questioning your knowledge, just so we're clear on that. Thank you for your help.

While it is not strictly legal according to postal regulations, stationery cutouts are frequently found used as postage.

They are frequently allowed through:

Other times they are caught and assessed postage due. Note the notations on the following:

In Britain the post office regulations allowed unused stamps to be cut out of postal stationery and used for postage in certain periods.

This was legal from 1845 to 1870 and then again from 1905 onwards.

Regulations for the new half-penny postcard rate in 1870 allowed cards not to be cancelled and as a result the post office banned the use of all cut-outs (not just the half-penny ones).

I've read that for a period after 1905 this allowed many dealers to use up old stocks of postal stationery that were not selling.

One particular stamp dealer, H. Edgar Weston of London, made a feature of creating philatelic covers in this way.

There were some restrictions so, for example, registration cut-outs could only be used on registered items.

The use of cut-outs for postage was also legal in Germany in various periods.
