    That's a great site, lots of info thanks!!

    I guess from reading the site that the unused IRs would be worth more, says at one point it was illegal to possess! I only have two mint officials,k love the history!

    In my opinion Howard, the Army 6d is not genuine. The lettering is too strong and chunky. It is dark now, [21:37] but if you need me to photo some army overprints I have so you can compare, I will gladly do so.

    Also if you are setting your stockbook out according to catalogue the overprints go at the back. They appear after page 39 in Gibbons GB volume 1.

    thanks, a pic would be great! If you have time ;) (just for my curiosity and interest) that stamp has been in that book for many many years, it's a trip that people were faking them that long ago, now, if it were real would it be worth a lot? If so I would be interested in sending it in to get it authenticated. Do you collect GB stamps mainly?

    Howard, I have several of these from the UK as well as other countries floating around in my collections as well. They are cutouts from postal stationary. Typically postal cards. I have yet to find anyone who collects these. There are, obviously, imperf stamps as well but the ones you show in your scans/pictures will typically be on a heavier, cardstock like paper like a post card.

    After searching some I found these two examples (not in my collection) I see what you're talking about, it's like one is in bold,

    what is the proper term for "built in stamp"?

    Howard there are two grades of genuine overprints. One being heavier and more valuble than the other, but the one you have looks thicker still.

    Any stamps I have have been passed down to me through my paternal family, but as I read and message on here I realise quite a bit of their knowledge has 'stuck'. The collection is mainly GB yes.

    Catalogue value is for the SGO45 = £80. or $128:23 if you are American.

    sounds like a great deal, here is the info from the 2012 Scott catalog,

    There is more info for other years, if you're not positive on the year, let me know and I will get pictures of the other values, good luck on the buy!

    You must take into account that some of these auctions have ended yet so the values could go higher

    This is really helpful H, thank you so much.
    So tell me if I am wrong but the top example is on card.
    Number two is only 2 margin and they are usually not desirable.
    Number 3 has an obliterated face [as two]
    number 4 has a pen cancel [reduces value to 50%]
    This makes the three margin one I am being offered worht the money? Yes?
