Regarding my post of May 10, 2018 at 300 pm...

Today received copy of Hasegawa's Japanese Revenue Stamp Catalogue(2016 edition).

The stamp is question is a "Cash Envelope Seal" (Catalogue # PB10) from 1954.

Stampfan9, thanks for posting those Lewis & Clark Expo Cinderellas. I lived in Portland for 12 years, but haven't seen those before. A handful of buildings from that fair are still standing but most have been moved to new locations.

Calstamp, another note about your Japanese "Cash Envelope Seal": Because of the limited editing window, it's too late to fix your original post, but the image is upside-down.

I've ran into these cinderellas. To me, they look as Turkish WWI cinderellas; but, I know next to nothing on this field. Any expert could give some more information? Thank you very much in advance.

Lovely stuff Cursus!
Very early (and unlisted in Scott) Postal Tax stamps.
The surcharged Flag issues are 1916.

Hi Jim,
yes I am, albeit I have moved over to McDonald revenue catalogue
for being contiguous with my other 'revenues" and Postal tax issues.

That being said, I am not sure, if McDonald cover the 1916 issues, I'll have to check.
The "Go to" is of course Isfila revenue catalogue, but a bit expensive for me at the moment.

Thank you very much, Rod.
Truly, I had no idea of what they were. These "stamps" apeared on a box, given to a charity shop in Barcelona. As I take care of the stamps field on that shop and nobody cares on no-postal stamps I get them for a token price. So, I kept them. But, I only know a little on Catalan cinderella; hence, this post.

Cursus,
lucky you, nice story of your charity shop.
Kindness paying back I'd warrant.

Going on Jim's advice, your Flag stamps (IF) unoverprinted, was 150 mint 90 used.

Overprinted as yours, and varieties 5
https://www.yanstan.com/TURKEY/REPU...G/ONLYRC.htm


Your first Opt stamp Top left has me beat.
It exists in a blue Opt (McDonald#31) 20pa on 1k
Your opt looks like "27"
I'll have to leave that one to the Turkish experts.

Thank you very much Rod. Some nice "exotic" keepers.The average level gives you an idea of the items' values.

Hi Cursus and Rod,

The surcharge is "20" as Rod says, but I can see how it could like like a "27".

The Turkish figure "2" is clear but the "0" is a fat dot that has been struck on the left side of the original Turkish "1" to give the combined appearance of a "7".

I read this as McDonald Red Crescent Society #30, 20pa on 1k red, yellow & black, surcharged in black.
