Hello kpriyank,

The first two are "newspapers and advertisements" revenue stamps.

They were applied to the paper before the document was printed.

The third stamp is from a postal stationery envelope. The stamp was printed on the back of the envelope with part on the upper flap.

In the second one the printing is in Armenian.

Dear NigelC,

Thanks a lot! I was able to find further info on the net after pointers given by you. Also learned about history of Armenia and Ottoman Empire.

Any idea where the Image 3 was cancelled? Is the city name readable?

Kpriyank,
can you meld the two stationery pieces together please,
so I can read the Postmark better.

Further to Nigel's Identification (Thanks Nigel)
Looks like Coles & Walker AR3 1865-1872
BEYROUT

I think AR3 should cover it.
Be cognisant that there are numerous varieties of the Beirut / Beyrout Pmk
depending on dates of use and style.
Depends on how precise you wish to be.
