I just discovered this stamp in my grandfathers old album but can't find it listed anywhere. Has anyone got any information?

What is the paper like?

It appears to be cut out of a Ceylon postal stationery post card or such like. They had a range of this design In various postal rates, including this 5c one.

Your right Alex if you Google your heading it all becomes clear? "Ceylon Postal stationary"

Seems like if you have the whole card these fetch good money as well, no idea what a cut out will fetch?

Cant find a match for this particular stamp though sadly.
