I can't understand the meaning of the symbol at the top right of the stamp, what is it? Does it belong to any particular type of print? Thank you.

Do you have a scanner? if so, scan at 1200 dpi or 1500 and crop to that corner. It looks signature-like. It could also be an ink transfer from a printed album page or something written under the stamp in an album page. try flipping your scan to see a mirror image.

it is most likely some kind of ownership mark applied by a previous possessor of the stamp.

Agreed, that seems most likely. That color is not unusual for an owner's mark.

josef, whatever that mark might be, it was not part of the printing process. Someone applied it after the stamp was used and soaked off its cover.
