There is an interesting story to this stamp - it is listed as Trinidad and Tobago SG 157 although authorised for use on only one day in 1914 as halfpenny stamp.

Last night I was searching for information on the Trinidad Red Cross Society charity stamps, as I have on this registered envelope - and found this thread from 2010.

Unfortunately the link given above no longer works. Does anyone know where it might be now?

From my SG catalogue -
1914 (18 Sept) - Red Cross Label authorised for use as a ½d stamp.
The above was authorised for internal use on one day only, to raise funds for the Red Cross.

Sadly, this cover is dated 7 Dec 1916.
