Could be. What are the catalogue numbers of the stamps. Pictures would be very helpful.

Can't see anything unusual about these. Could you isolate what you think are the errors, please?

i seem to have mistaken the numbers on the other side for original printing, its seems they are from being stamped on.

Anyways heres a video I found on the internet about 3 in the second image.
could you help me tell if they are the same ones? and how to value them if they are?

In the video:

- the first stamp shown has the overprinted digit "4" inverted. Yours is normal
- the second stamp is an imperforated copy of the 7.50. Yours is a perforated, overprinted stamp

I am thinking the overprinted ones are due to currency change, inflation /deflation.
What do you think because the numbers overprinted are too perfect to be stamped on to them.

These are common, normal Lebanese stamps. Overprinting to change face value following changes of postal rate was a common practice.
