Cat. Value (Adjusted Cat. value adjusted for condition:
When desaturating to bring out the postmark, the very faint remains of what the stamp was stuck onto was revealed. After flipping the image and doing a high pass, it appears to say “AFFIX HALF-PENNY STAMP INLAND” and was a common term on the top right corner of postcards, indicating the appropriate stamp position but postage. A full blog post on this “ghost of the past” can be found here: https://www.sgbpa.co.uk/blog/invisible_text_revealed.html Besides this, the stamp itself is in fairly good condition with minimal damage to the face, gum or perforations. The post mark is clean and mostly complete (at least it can be discern where it is from). I’m unsure about the exact identification due to colour-blindness but there are other things more interesting about this specimen!
