I have just acquired some stamps from a garage sale and had a few that I could not identify. I do not know Arabic. Can someone help me identify these or point me in the right direction? Thanks!

The second one in indigo is a half anna from the Indian state of Jammu and Kashmir for use in Jammu.
The last two are familiar but I cannot place them. The first is arabic in style
Sorry I cannot help more

These are bogus Faridkot 1888 1Folus/A (rose-red and orange respectively) imperf. lithograph reprints of Faridkot 1879 1F SG N5, printed on white wove paper from redrawn stone I, characterized by 6 dots in the floret design in the upper right corner of the stamp.

Vignette: The top panel shows the inscriptions in Farsi as Riyasat I Faridkot i.e. State/Principality of Faridkot and the bottom panel Tikat I Khat Ek Paisa i.e. Stamp of Letter One Paisa.

This is a forgery (reprints have clearer impression) of Jammu 1877 A deep blue black old rectangular oilcolor imperf. on native paper (SG 76) which is an exceedingly rare stamp as only 4 examples have yet been recorded.

Thank you all for your help. It is greatly appreciated. I kind of suspected the bogus ones, but was not sure. Thanks again!
