    I figure this is Scott 252 type III,
    What Inotice that in the right upper corner, inside the triangle are only 2 dots, as far as I can see. Does that change anything?
    Am I correct in identifying it?

    Impossible to decide !
    Is the stamp unwatermarked ?
    I guess it is watermarked,again simply because they are much
    more common and cheaper.
    The watermark often is difficult to detect.
    If it is watermarked,it should be either 267 or 279B,depending
    on the colour.As the colour-difference is minute,one can only
    decide,if at all,if you have the stamp in the original.
    The missing third point could be scraped off,as there seems
    to be some kind of damage on the right side.
    All that,if it is really Type III.The scan is not very sharp.

    Hello Makanudo, try re-scanning at 300 DPI.
    It does appear that there is a score line (or crease) through where the third dot should be?

    Thank you for the observations.
    I appologise if the scan was poor.
    The stamp seems to have a watermark, some sort of square in the middle verticaly and to the far right edge horizontally.
    Here is a photo where you hopefully can see more clearly.
    These creases you see in closeup are not visible when looking at the stamp normally.
