Hi Nigel,
I'd echo Geoff's comment, lovely filligree work around the corners and capitals.
Birken #12a (HG#1)
#12a indicates white card (12b yellowish)
1st January 1877, 126x91mm , varies with imprecise cutting.
Turkish Inscription: Open Correspondence card of the General Post Office.

Quote:
Here's one more Ottoman postcard, this time from 1901, H&G #10 on pink card:

Birken #34a (Green on Rose card) 1st-14th March 1901 (HG#10) 10 paras Local Post.
Local and Inland Mail
Turkish, middle Post of the sublime Ottoman Empire.
Left Corner : Open correspondence Card.
Bottom : On this side only write name, cognomen, and residence of addressee.

FYI.
Under UPU regulations, if a vessel is in port when a letter or postcard is turned in, it is required to be franked with the stamps of the country in whose waters the vessel is located.

Only second example found in 7 years.
Triangle TPO (Travelling Post Office) unreadable.
Any members have information on Turkish TPO's?

Wow! Fabulous Postmaster, thank you so much.
I was aware of the Seapost link, and had visited previously with other countries, but must have missed Turkey.
A case of not seeing the forest for the trees.
What a great link that is............

Update to long-ago asked question from GeoffHa:


Quote:
Michael - have you visited Pamuk's Museum of Innocence in Istanbul, which he funded by his Nobel Prize winnings?


Well I visited. Sort of. Had friends come to visit - and apparently, at her book club, they had read his book & she promised them she would visit the museum.

So we were downtown & decided to wander off to see this museum. Left my wife & son in Taksim & off we went.

Wandered in circles - for what seemed like miles. But we found it!



(Can't seem to get the picture right side up??)

It was so small & silly looking - not another soul in sight. Just an old house in a residential neighborhood that was apparently converted into the museum. My friends wouldn't even go in! It was like $10 admission - and she said she wasn't interested - just wanted to see it & take a picture?!

Walk back to Taksim was literally straight up hill. Very thankful I left my wife & kid. It was January, but we were literally sweating & had to take off jackets/sweatshirts etc.

All in all - a cute-looking building - but not exactly a memorable experience?!?

She's been to too many ritzy New York museums, Michael! This one is, I think, very personal to Pamuk and the Istanbul of his memory. This feeling is also conveyed in his beautiful book about the city -

New Discovery.
Unlisted Scott or Isfila.
(Note : Isfila catalogue error , Isfila 156,157.158, should read 170,171, and 172)

Isfila #171 (Sc#P33 1893 Newspaper Stamp with inverted Opt on 2k)
Forwarding to O.N.E.P.S. for scrutiny.

Hi Rod,

This printed matter overprint looks wrong to me in a number of ways.

In particular, I would expect the vertical part of the letter "t" of "matbu" to lean slightly to the left rather than to the right.

Roger that Nigel,
I'll dig out Birken and report later...........

PS: I did think that looked a little dodgy, like someone inked in the stroke afterwards / later. The rest of the opt looks ok, but I shall consult Birken.

With respect Michael, I don't personally take any observance to sweeping comments like that.
I expect any collector worth his salt, to attach reasoning, so that due diligence and transfer of knowledge can be obtained.

I'll see if I can scan the page in my specialists catalogue for your opinion.

Aha! thanks for that, that is comforting.
albeit, Isfila lists <everything> like this in their specialists catalogue
or appears to do so, inverted opts, miss perfs, all sorts of sundry stuff.

Right,
we can confirm, as Nigel suggested, a Lithographic Forged Overprint.
(Shall make a nice interesting page for my album)

With deep appreciation of member "PostmasterGS" for relevant translation, to make it easy for fellows like myself.

Michael,
the presumed typo in the Ottoman Specialised.
One can see the numbers do not match the images.
No big problem.
