Can anyone ID this stamp that was in my Great Britain collection? I can't find anything like this anywhere in the Scott Classics catalog for GB, official stamps or any colonies, etc. Postmark clearly 1903 putting it in the era of the Edward VII series 1902-11. Odd things are (1) the color - blue or blue grn, (2) imperforate, and (3) in contrast to all other normal GB stamps says "postage" only and not "postage & revenue". I don't see a watermark, the paper is pretty thin. Again on the postmark, not sure what city in England ends with "-pon". Could this be from an envelope?

Thanks!

The "PON" cancel is most likely from "Ripon" (north of Leeds).

Great, thanks. From a half-penny postcard. Interesting how they called that a "card" but the paper is so thin. Do you know if this was also printed as postal stationary?

No, I think it was only used for postal cards. The only Edward envelopes I see listed used an oval indicia, and wrappers used a taller rectangular image with rounded corners.
