It's an unissued stamp from Ukraine.

The trident at the top is a good indication of a Ukraine stamp.

The text at the left says "Poshta Ukrainska" and at the right, "Narodnya Respublika".

The stamp shows the Ukrainian head of state, Simon Petlyura.

By the time these stamps had been printed, the Red Army had occupied Kiev and the Ukrainian forces had withdrawn into Poland.

Thank you, Rod and Nigel. I did look through Ukraine, but missed this listing, probably because I was looking for an image with a person. I appreciate the help!

Alan,
you have suffered Philatelic "Catalogue blindness"
It happens to all of us, at one time or another.

It will happen to you again, sooner or later
It is a right of passage.........
