Any help appreciated, I am very happy for you to share this stamp on other sites or media if it helps get the stamp identified.

Thanks to everyone who has tried to help so far.
I couldn't stay away - but I will be posting much less this time so as not to offend those with delicate sensibilities :-)

There is a Facebook page for a Watt Duck but it's an individual "Entrepreneur" not a country.

There is the residual cancellation mark on the left-handed of the two.  Are these stamps postally used or mint?

This reminds me of my parents' 'Upduck'.

They would say to us kids, 'You've got some upduck on your shirt...' and we'd say 'What's upduck' and they'd reply 'Nothing's up sweetie.."

Is 'duck' still used as a term of endearment these days?

Thank you for all the private messages regarding this stamp.

I have looked as best I can but cannot deduct anything from the cancellation mark, it is very faint but more due to the strength of the strike than to anything age-related such as fading, I think.

The size is approx 34mm x 41mm, the paper is gummed and is red, not printed with a red background.

Thanks again, any help appreciated!

I should also have said that the two stamps came with a bundle of cinderellas from a show in York.

That's a great picture, what is the background all about?

It's not listed in the Discworld Catalogue website so definitely not a Discworld stamp, if that helps you Derek
OK!!!

It was ME!

I designed the stamp back some 15 years ago for my local Post Office which was run by a Mr Watt Duck. 

I am amazed that there are still sheets of it available, I wouldn't mind one myself  Wink

Mystery solved!

Welcome to the forum, Alison, I think it was on Facebook I saw that Colin now had the sheets that Derek had found so might be best to contact him before he sells them to someone else.

Where was your local Post Office back then? Might they still have some copies?

Have you made any other stamps since?  Can you remember where were the stamps perforated?
