The St Edwards Crown watermark can be difficult to make out particularly with the stamps that have solid colour in the design (such as the ½d value). The '2' in the wmk is particularly prone to this difficulty. Your drawing of the wmk has the 'E' and the 'R' inverted in relation to each other. Are you sure you have drawn it as it appears on the stamp as it seems very unlikely that this would have happened. Without a more precise representation of the wmk it is difficult to express an opinion.
