  1. Hi, I am having an identical stamp, the 2 d Postage Due stamp.I would like to know the difference between Type 1 and Type 2.
    I would like to sell it after confirming which type it is.

  2. I have this stamp, though I’m not sure if it is “the” right one.
    It would be wonderful if someone would help in assessing this stamp.

    It is in absolute perfect condition, never used or watermarked.
