A friend has an old Bulgarian pay cheque with this stamp on, marked 1932. I was wondering if anyone can help ID it?

A Bulgarian Revenue stamp, not listed in major Catalogues.
You may wish to Google eBay Bulgaria Revenue stamps, to see the plethora of designs.

Our member "MrPhilaRooms" may have a catalogue.

Ah so they're Bulgarian promissory notes from 1935! Thank you for the initial ID rod222.

I have recently bought some of these. They can be found in the BULGARIA & ROMANIA REVENUES catalogue by J. Barefoot Ltd.

Would anyone know why they are also printed on the back?

Wow!
That's a first for me.
Rather astonishing, all I can think of, is as a security measure.

I can't think of any other reason, but it is rather weird. The backs are printed in 5 different colours dependent on value and some are fully printed and others masked off to form diamonds.

A rather ordinary looking revenue stamp has suddenly become more interesting.
