Evening all, hope everyone is keeping well at this difficult time.
I have a stamp I am stuck on, found in an old album bought ages ago that I am just now (thanks to lockdown) getting round to sorting.
The lettering appears to be from the former Yugoslavia area, but currency is paras, suggesting Turkey area.
I have searched all the countries that look likely in the SG world stamps catalogue, and no joy.
This leads me to believe this is a revenue stamp of some sort.
Has anyone a direction to point me in?
Thanks in advance.
Regards
DavidR

"Kraljev. Srba, Hrvata I Slovenaca" = Kingdom of Serbs, Croats and Slovenes, i.e., Yugoslavia.

Thanks Robert. Don't know how I didn't see that the first three times I went through the catalogue!
Stay safe.
