- UK 1841 definitive stamp. 1d. Red, HH, Plate unknown, maybe 5.
May I check if this is a late usage of a plate 12 penny red? Thank you

I think it is plate 61. But it could easily be 67.

I have found 2 x QV 2d Blue stamps in some paperwork of my fathers - see above.
I have no knowledge about stamps and really need some help in identifying them to find out whether they have any value before I decide what to do with them.
I do hope this is the right thread to post on, if not please do move!
Thanking you in anticipation.
Sorry to come in late on this but in fact both stamps are unit SH of plate 4 - together they make a perf 16/perf 14 matched pair.emason wrote: ↑23 Feb 2022 03:52 Hello Debra,
Your twopenny blue stamps:
The left one comes from plate 4 and its catalogue number is SG19. (small crown watermark, perforated 16)
The right one is from plate 5 and is probably SG34. (large crown, perforated 14).
If it has a small crown watermark then it is SG23A.
Given their visible condition, their value would be about £5 each.
Yes, it is a very fine stamp, which I think is from plate 120 (not 100% sure)
I would be happy to call that a plate 5.
Many thanks, Bill, the letters and the weak corner were my clues, but had not noticed the base line. Greatly appreciated. Cheers, Tod.
It's alphabet 1, so no.
I think GK, and if so possibly plate 32 (which would be late use with 1844 cancellation), but a better scan required to be sure.
A plate 11 black (which I assume you mean) is catalogued around 12x cheapest plate in VFU condition based on SG catalogue, i.e £4600 vs £375 for the most common plate.
