I am very new to stamps and stumbled into Philately when I discovered these 1924 Imperial Japan revenue stamps in a Big Little Book late last year.

Thanks to some earlier translation and identification help I believe this is some sort of a cover for legal court documents. The writing indicates the origin is Nago Okinawa.

The big mystery is, why were holes so neatly punched in the stamps? I have been told by quite a few people that such was not the normal practice for these types of stamps or for the location in general. Any thoughts?

The little mystery is, why are there five Latin numerals in the top left corner "00303"?
