Dear Sir
I have these two stamps in my collection and as I was going to sell them I thought I would check online to see if they have any value......I have attached images and can verify that they both measure 19 1/4mm by 22 1/2mm on the image and the edge to edge they both measure 22mm x 25 1/4mm....I am in all likelihood not in possession of a rare stamp but I am in doubt therefore would value your opinion.
Yours sincerely,
Tony Wilkinson

Answer
Tony Wilkinson,

Both stamps look to me to be perforated 11 x 10, which would identify them as Scott 632, the common version of this design.  The stamps have a catalog (retail) value of 25 each, but for practical purposes, they are worth perhaps a penny apiece.
