Suspect Scott #352, Used Single.
If real this is a modestly expensive stamp with a Scott Catalogue value of $220.00 for a used single. The Experts Book states that the #353 is often faked by adding perforations at left & right and trimming top & bottom a Scott #344, adding perforations at left & right to a Scott #344S or trimming perforations off at the top & bottom of a Scott #332.
The watermark is double line and in the corners.
The height of the suspect is 24.5mm, just short of the ideal 25mm but the Experts Book says this is not an indicator of genuineness or not.
The left perforations gauge out to 11.939 and the right perfs gauge at 11.921 which is within the range of tolerance. The left perforations are parallel with the frame but the right perforations are angled from the frame being closer to the top and farther away from the bottom.
The top and bottom edges show possible evidence of perforation remains.
Conclusion: In my opinion the suspect is a #332 with the perforations trimmed away from the top and bottom.
