Hello all, I think this is a 25c ultra, blue coloured through Scott 22 under the Scott Austria Offices in Crete since when I put it beside a Scott Austria Offices in the Turkish Empire 58 they seem the same - and the other Offices in Crete don't have the colour through.
I got them as part of a lot I picked up because of this lovely Beirut cancel on a 15c Scott catalogue number 17 from the Austrian Offices in Crete - of no great value except aesthetic. Just looking for confirmation opinions or reasonable objections. The cancel on the 25c stamp is from Adrianopel (Adrianopoli I'm guessing?). Thanks in advance for any thoughts.

My copy of Scott Classic Specialized (2013) says that the blue paper of #22 is colored through. The only option would be #18a, but that's deep blue on greenish blue paper that is not colored through.

Here's a recent discussion of Austrian offices in Crete that might interest you as well.

Adrianopel is the old German spelling for what is now Edirne, European Turkey (home of the most beautiful mosque IMO).
