The second one is a 1919 issue from Bulgaria (or what then was Kingdom of Bulgaria) with a face value of 2 stotinki.

Edit: The Bulgarian Ministry of Transport, IT and Comm. has a catalog of what seems to be all Bulgarian stamps. Unfortunately it's only in Bulgarian, so I'm not sure this link would help you much: http://www.mtitc.government.bg/page...=144&id=1871

Here's what is says about your stamp though: Num. printed: 47085000, in use until 30 June 1923. There were quality problems with the whole issue (paper creasing, partial loss of gum, and perforation problems). The artist of the design is S. Badzhov.

In the Scott catalog:

Saudi Arabia #L9(1917) -- your picture has the stamp upside-down
Bulgaria #137(1919)

Thanks guys. You guys are great. Am sorting out my dad's collections which has been neglected for the last 15 years or so. Am getting caught in between when I come across stamps not in English. There are few more stamps not in English and some real funny stamps. Will post them as I sort them out. Am glad to have found this forum. Tks once again guys.

I am not saying don't ask questions on the forum, because that is what the forum is for, but maybe one of these might help you out and save some time as well. Well worth the $8.00.

Bought the 25c Spanish stanmp over the weekend, was wondering what the strange watermark on the stamp is, is it a rare or a common watermark or could it be a fake?
