Trinidad Britannia stamp - is this a horizontal Bisect???

Post by michaelpbreen »

Hello,

Trying to figure out if I have something unique and genuine or if this is a counterfeit, or a mistake.

This is pre-1900 Trinidad "Britannia". Pic attached. Any info is appreciated.

Thanks,

Mike

A 'bisect' (not Bi Sect!) is a stamp cut into 2 pieces.

Yours simply has an extra row of perfs.

The stamp was near worthless as some idiot had cut off near all perfs, and it is a 30 second job for someone to add extra perf holes -- not even straight, and parallel to top and bottom edges, as would generally occur if done via printer - you lazily did not load your fuzzy image squarely, but it still seems clear the perf line is out of square
