I've googled and searched and have been unable to find the (probably very obvious) answer. I searched through stampworld as well.

Were some of these stamps imperforate? Was it a different issue date than the perforate variety?

Again, I apologize in advance if this is blatantly obvious to most.

Those are newer than my area of interest, but I assume they are cutouts from postal stationery. I say this because the Pillar has been used on postal cards, at least, and India has used printed representations of perfs around indicia before.

The two on the right side look like cut-outs from postal stationery, postcards or other printed matter

That's what I was thinking too. I was thrown off because you can see a dotted guideline on the border of the stamps. The orange/brown stamp shows the printed "perforate" guide along the lower right hand side and the purple stamp is easier to see along the top.

If it was on an envelope, would it have this border around it? Or did it come from a sheet/block that wasn't perforated?

The dotted lines may be where the recipient was supposed to tear the official envelope open.

Thank you for the info. I found it interesting when sorting. I'm going to look deeper on the internet to see if I can find an example of the envelope.

Stationery
Service is Government Issue, not seen on entire.
These I think are lettersheets, but why Government?
The dotted line above the indicia suggests to me Lettersheets.

Much appreciated, Rod. I like the design of these. I have to keep on sorting to find a few more so I can make a Steiner page like yours - though your pages set the bar very high! :)

This is helpful. Jumping in, is this probably the same case for these Mexican stamps? Postal stationary or A perforated and imperf version? Thank you as well.

Stationery Mrita, you can generally tell by thickness and colour (cream or buff)

Asoka.
I see lettercards / stationery were introduced c1951
I have seen indicia glued to cover, but not the Asoka
The multiples are very interesting, look forward to having this solved....

I have emailed an Indian Philatelist Blogger,
Living with Hobby is Living in Happiness.... this attracted me.

I'll post if I get a reply,
perhaps block stamps used for telegrams?

I'm interested to see his answer. Wild love to know more about why they were made this way.
