I think ...#3617;#3627;#3634;#3604;#3652;#3607;#3618; is (Ministry of) Interior.

#3669; #3648;#3617;.#3618;. #3619;.#3624;.... is 5 April R.S. ... (Rattanakosin Era)

The stamp is an 24 att stamp issued in 1887 and although it says postage and revenue, it as never used for revenue purposes The Ratanakosin Era started in 1889 equalts RS108. This is 108 years after starting the new Royal dynasty. The picture on the stamp shows King Rama V. So the stamp was used after 1889
The red overprint is like a security marking. The stamp has a big black Swiss type postmark from I belive Bangkok

I like some help and advice with the Revenue? stamp shown in the picture.

It is a Thai stamp from December 1932 and the first line reads license to transport alcohol.

In 1932 there was a revolution in Thailand and the new government was desperate to raise money. They started several taxes. However the first revenue stamps on bottles of alcohol was introduced much later after 1943. For sure a fee had to be paid for the alcohol transport license.

My Question: Can this stamp be considered a Revenue stamp??
Do other countries have revenue stamps for transporting alcohol?

Thanks a lot

Question
