I cant find this stamps anywhere. It is not in my 1915 Forbin catalogue - as far as I can tell. Very frustrating. It looks like a revenue stamp. The design is totally cool and has a coat of arms on the top and ship and train on the bottom. The stamp is imperforate and has no meaningful cancellation. The way the "1 Kr." looks like it is almost typed onto the stamp, as opposed to being printed. All the above makes me think that the stamp could be a fake. If it is a fake, it is totally cool. The stamp looks like it is an 1800's item.

Any thoughts?

You guys are the best. I can never stump anyone on this chat board. Someday I will stump you guys and then I will gloat for months.

In meantime, my 1915 Forbin catalogue book does not show this stamp at all. What gives with that!?!?!

Interesting differences between my stamp and the picture of the other that is posted. In my stamp, one can see far more detail in the ship and locomotive and the smoke plumes. These details are lost in the other stamp due to over-application of ink.

The first few sets of Austrian revenue stamps have different designs for each value.

For the 1850 set, Forbin says on page 187 (1915 edition), "Dessin varié pour chaque valeur." i.e. the design is different for each value.

This stamp is from a later issue (without the letters C.M.) but the same is true for these issues too.

Here's a group of the 1870 set with the same basic designs but with the addition of the 1870 date at the bottom of each design:

You can see the 1 kr. value along with some of the other designs from the same set:



This is not mine. I've copied it from the Internet.
