Here is the 5c yellow green value (Sc #RA3) from Peru's 1925-6 postal tax set. These stamps were required for mail in Tacna and Arica. The tax was designed to help defray the cost of a plebiscite, as the area was under Chilean occupation at that time. Stamp depicts a train moving through Morro Arica.
