I have a small pile of unidentifiable stamps but the easiest would be 1 that has a circles B in the upper left hand corner . No other markings. Is it Belgium? Thx for your help.

Without an image or picture there really is no way to tell. There are billions of stamps from hundreds of countries over the last 150 years so guessing is going to be futile.

Hi Shimmymom, and welcome to the family. Stallzer is correct, but there my be a way out. They just came out with a thing called 'Google".
Google "Belgian stamps" and click on images. With a bit of luck you will find your stamp

Hi.
Most likely a railway stamp from Belgium.

About Belgium's Railway Stamps
https://alphabetilately.org/TOC/RAILWAY-MAIL.html

Finally, Railway Letter Stamps in Belgium (catalogued as "Official Stamps") bear either a symbol (wheel with wings) or the letter <<B>> in an oval. They are affixed on the correspondence sent by the Railway Company through the regular postal services and can in theory only be used for the correspondence of the Railway Company (if using them on private correspondence, the sender was assumed to have "stolen" them from the Railway Company), but you could always buy them mint from the post office (for collectors).
