Hello, Does anyone have any idea of what these were used for or possibly a catalog number?
Thank you
David
It appears that two of these did not enlarge. I will try to get larger scans of them.

No idea of catalogue numbers or values, but the first is a revenue specifically for securities (stocks etc); the other two appear to be general revenues. The last is a 5 Sen value.

1.
Effets de commerce et quittances is 'commercial effects and receipts'. (all listed as this type)

1884
forbin cat #23 P13.5, 9
(note: be watchful Japanese Medicine stamps are similar)

2.
as above
1900
forbin cat #35 2s green P13

3.
this is a guess, trying to match colours

as above
1876
forbin catalogue #15 5s brown

I have a similar issue as violet







Effigie de vieillard is 'effigy of an old man'. How one relates that to stamps is beyond me.

David,
the bottom left is the list I am guessing
your brwon-red 5 sen issue belongs (1876),
these revenues I have not seen much of,
albeit I don't go looking for them,
The design looks more modern than 1876 which raiises doubts.
also an image of the violet? purple? issue.

Check if your lower stamp is either
perf 10 or 13, if not, then those stamps are not listed.

Hi rod222, It is a perf 13. What is it that makes it look more modern? Is it the cancel or the overall look of it.
Thanks

No reason other than a "hunch", David
The early Japanese brothers and sisters
in the "postage" family were ovals and circles,
it wasn't until 1913, designers went for the scroll effect,
and this is what your example looks like to me.



Not based on anything but "feeling"
so just disregard it
