I found this one in my "new" stamp collection. The color is off and slightly blurry because I had to put it under glass. It was rolled up.

That's a revenue stamp from Austria.
The border says "Kais. Koen. Oest. Stempelmarke", abbreviation for "Kaiserlich-Königlich Österreichische Stempelmarke". Which translates to "Imperial-Royal Austrian revenue stamp".

It's not in my Austria Netto catalog, though.

Be wary of some of those Austrian revenues -- they are printed on paper that will self-destruct if soaked...
