Values for Used Stamps: Where the catalogue value is higher for a used stamp than a mint stamp the higher value will apply only if the stamp is clearly postmarked from a time period close to the date of issue, and the cancellation appears to be a genuine postal cancel only (not a revenue cancel, a fiscal cancel, forged cancel, a favour cancel, a pen cancel, a CTO or a smudged or illegible cancel).
