I recently purchased a lot of mixed worldwide stamps and there is one I received that I am completely unsure of. It has no numbers or letters to search for in Google so I am lost. Does anyone know what this is and if it is indeed a stamp or not?

Hi Kendra,

I believe it's a Turkish telegraph seal, possibly used by the Istanbul army censor.

Here's a link to a useful reference:

I have one exactly the same.
