Hi all. I found this cancelled Japanese stamp in the collection and as part of cataloging, I need to identify the year. Now through research it looks similar to the 1876 and the 1883 version of this stamp, but that can not be right as the middle is oval not round. Any ideas for me?
Also, cool bonus. The cancellation mark on this other stamp reminds me of an evil eye. Cool huh? Thanks again for any info.
