And I thought the 3k in the middle was odd duck. So much to learn. I really must get an Isfil catalog of some sort.

My next inquiry is concerning this Postal tax stamp, which I believe is suppose to be RA208. Problem is I don't see anything in Scott about a black color omitted error, or variety. Is this a known error?

Perf Guage?

Could be anything.
My guess is a private printing, and mis appropriated by unkown persons, or printer's waste.
Not Listed. (In any of my reference papers)

Exists
1958 Unknown date, (Turkey ceased postal tax stamps in June 1958)

If the missing black would have had KURUS in Capitals
then RA208
Existed Imperforate.
Existed Part Perforate

If the missing black would have KURUS in lower case letters, then would have been a private charity printing (after June 1958)
(of which many appeared)

We shall never know with yours.
Largest question unknown to me, was PULHAN MATBAASI inscription on RA208? or private printing?
My RA208 Indeed has the inscription, with Capital KURUS
I am ergo, assuming yours is an RA208 with missing black colour.
Should be Perf. 10.5
My Crescent is scarlet, yours appears to be carmine?

Variety? Error? your choice.

I have come to the conclusion (rightly or wrongly)
both yours and mine are private charity printings (After June 1958)

Have a look at Scott PT79, the design is different, the clouds have a different shape.

To Further confuse things
YANSTAN (Cat#247) has the 1k brown ...PULHAM MAATBASSI

Scott does not show any such inscription in its image. (PT79)

Hiya Rod, thanks for your considerable input on this.
A couple things:
Mine is indeed perf 10.5

The clouds are, I believe, actually different in the later version of the stamp, and not quite like the PT79 design. I am including a screen cap from Stampworld (not that I trust Stampworld any more than Scott), showing all the various denominations from that later set. All of the ones with this particular design have the same cloud pattern and the inscription in the margin, although you cannot see the 25k because of such a small margin.

I do believe it is the RA208, design, perf and color at least. But, I would also think that such an "error" would have been recorded somewhere, so the conclusion that it is something privately produced, or printers waste is much more logical, and it is how I will label it in my album, until other information might come to light.
