Hi all

As a keen collector, but by no means an expert, I was hoping someone out there can confirm if my assumptions are correct. I believe this stamp is SG35a - Deep blue QV2d with lines (thin). Large Crown watermark, Imperf.

Whilst 3 margins are cut off the right hand margin definitely shows the left side of the next stamp, thus making this an imperf stamp rather than one with its perforations cut off. Also looks like Alphabet III.

Can the experts out there confirm or correct me pleasesg35a.jpg?

Many thanks in advance.

Suggest scanning it front & back at a decent resolution. Compare with the ?C stamps in plate 6 on: **LINK**. and also plate 5 examples.

If a genuine large crown wmk then further investigation needed!

Billy - only on the ones with letters in all four corners, not those with stars.
