Horizontal pair. Scott value is for two singles, since Scott does not list a pair value for this particular stamp, presumably due to scarcity (there is no listing in The Curtis Census for R45d). Two visible blue threads, one on the reverse of the left stamp and one on the obverse of the right stamp, both highlighted with yellow arrows. Right stamp also exhibits a faint doubling of the top frameline, however not as strong as the Scott-listed 'top frame line double'.
