In the right stamp you will see a clear full hyphen between half and cent. On the right stamp there appears to be a small dot in this place. I found another 69 online with the same dot as the one on the left and it was ID's as the "No Hyphen" variety. While this adds value, it's nothing that ill make you rich. It's just exciting to me to find a previously unidentified variety.

Any opinions out there as to whether this indeed is the No Hyphen variety?

According to Scott it is the 69a variety without hyphen. I see the point in brown, I think that it is part of the design of the stamp and has nothing to do with the surcharge. Excellent find!

The surcharge appears fake to me, with a different font, and out of alignment.

It is also much lower on the stamps than any jpegs of other #69's show (there are many to compare on Hip and Ebay). Compare the overprint closely.

re: Barbados ...Scott #69. No hyphen variety?

You sometimes get different versions of the same overprint on the same sheet of stamps so you can't just compare overprints unless you know whether this occurred or not. Check out Newfoundland #160 which had 3 different versions of the same overprint on different parts of the sheet worth different amounts depending on frequency. I have no idea if this Barbados stamp had this going on but check first before you cry "fake". Many overprints were faked and it didn't really depend on value, I think it was done for postal purposes sometimes or maybe just for the fun of it. As I've mentioned before early Poland overprints are almost always fake.

re: Barbados ...Scott #69. No hyphen variety?

I will list it noting questionable cancel. The diff in unused vs used in Scott is little $20 vs $40.....so maybe $4 at retail? Hardly worth the time to pursue. I was only happy to have found the variety.
