I have four of these stamps from France. I have searched through catalogs by denomination and year but have yet to find anything about this stamp. For my personal collection I sort by year so I don't need many details, but a year of issue would certainly help, unless it was issued more than once with different paper or perforations or something. Any ideas? Thank you!

Registration of official documents.
"Dimension" because the amount of the tax depended on the size of the document.
Regards.
