re: Booklet versus SA stamps?

The perfs are different - the SAG perfs are perfectly uniform. I'm not sure of the actual perf count though.

Compare what you have to a known WAG - ie water activated gum issue - and it will be obvious.

re: Booklet versus SA stamps?

As Theresa says, check the perf edges, on SA they are smooth and uniform, the WAG ones will be uneven and the fibre ends will show easily where they have been torn.
On the set you mention one has Phosphor lines the other is on phosphorized paper (SA). The WAG ones came from a booklet pane.

Sometimes it is better to look at the back of the stamps. The one on the left is self adhesive and the one on the right from a sheet.
Note the uniformity of perf on the left and the irregular "torn" perfs on the right.

The same stamps from the front:-

Thanks, all. that's what I thought but looking at examples on Hipstamp , they all look the same. BTW: there are hundreds of SA's listed as water activated stamps on Hipstamp.

I guess some people are in for a surprise. Soaking
some SA's in water sometimes causes the stamp to
crinkle and become just about worthless.

re: Booklet versus SA stamps?

The initial self adhesives like the submarines above can be easily soaked off with water.

From 2008 they changed the adhesive and water just does not do the job and like Charlie says the stamp crinkles and is uncollectable.
