I'm having problems identifying this Victorian stamp from Grenada and wondered if anyone has any ideas. Originally I thought it was SG37c with the ´THRFE´error, but it doesn't have the 1d surcharge.

It has the THRFE error and appears to be postally used with the SG T10 overprint but after that I am lost.

Does anyone have any ideas?

Gibbons says that these stamps without the surcharge are revenue stamps. Barefoot's revenue catalogue lists this value (#4) but his listing of the THRFE variety is on the three half pence as is SG's. The 3d was not overprinted for postal use, Barefoot points out that there are many varieties of broken letters but only the THRFE variety on the 1 1/2d was due to the wrong letter being added, I looked at the scan carefully but it is impossible to tell, without a much more careful examination, it it is a broken E or a broken F. Certainly a collectible variety for the revenue collector though!
