I recently inherited 5 stamp albums, almost all have been catalogued & added to my collection but I'm left with a couple troublesome issues. Hope someone can help.
The country of issue is most important to me, if someone has the catalogue # and year, that would also be helpful as well. Thanks for your help

The third one is Bosnia and Herzegovena Scott #B14(1917). The first one looks like an Austrian revenue stamp. The second one is way above my pay grade!

1. Hungarian Revenue ?
Austrian General Revenue, 3rd Issue 1866, design is a natural leaf from the Linden Tree 36 kroner.

3. Bosnia-Herzegovina

May we have a close up of 2 please ? looks vaguely familiar, perhaps German, but the star and headdress would suggest Italy.

Thanks.
I surrender, dashed if I can find it, still favouring Germany (workers dues?)
or Italy (star and castle is the allegory of Italy)

I have looked through my 400 previously unidentified stamps, and the best I can come up with, is Italy, which may assist other members here on SCF ? ...........

Well, I gotta admit, it was a "Wow" for me too........

The remaining enigma for me, is that there are postage stamps using that odd design by varying lines making up the image.
Dashed if I can recall from what country they were from.

I think I recall a specialist name for that type of imagery.

The portraits/busts on the large format US 1865 newspaper stamps are done like that. There should be others from other countries.

Thanks HB,
perhaps "cross contour" drawing.
Very Similar to engraving.
