SSSSHHHHH.....
Not much to say really after my entry bombardment of the other day. Just a calm and little entry now with just a picture for you to enjoy, of those wonderful Wilding stamps. It's a 1953 2.5d booklet pane of six, from cylinder no. J1 no dot.

Oh alright then, did you know there are two types of the 2.5d? No? Well, they're quite easy to distinguish. The ones in this pane are type II, and what you do to find out is look at the frontal cross of the diadem.

Now take a look at that same cross from type I.

As you can see, the top line on the cross only goes halfway on type I and goes all the way on type II.

Why fiddle with that frontal cross? That will be revealed in my next post!
