Apparently it's a false alarm as Mr Tim Clarke, a specialist on these issues has confirmed it is a plate 177 due to the placement of the 7's and the positioning of the check letters.

Ah well ! we all live in hopes of one day finding that elusive stamp.

I have just received further information that the finder of the stamp is not fully convinced of Mr Clarke's answer and is seeking further specialist opinions as to it's authenticity.

Have a look yourself and see what YOU think of his find on the above site ! WM.
