I hope everyone is well and healthy.

Could anyone identify these Tax stamps from Romania? I was unable to locate either in the Scott catalog or on www.stampworld.com.

Thanks.

Wagner

Tip:
"Search" can be your friend

All is needed is to type Timbru de Adjutor in the search bar
(or part string thereof)

These are from the fiscal tax stamp issue of 1916, which contains Scott #RA3 and #RA5. Only the 5b and 10b denominations were used as a tax on postage -- there were also 50b, 1l, 2l, 5l, and 50l denominations, which were used to pay the tax on railway fares, theater tickets, etc.

Scott only lists the postal issues, 5b and 10b.

The entire 1916 fiscal tax set is illustrated here:

Thanks,
Good tip rod222, I hadn't thought of that.
Checking the link you sent, I was impressed with the details of the number under the bodice.
I inherited a stamp collection from an uncle of mine many years ago, and now that I am having time to research I am finding the details of the old stamps increasingly fascinating.

Thank you
Wagner

Thanks very much Codehappy...
I visited the page you sent, and it contains my two stamps, but I didn't discover the meaning of the letters: A B C D K.
Do you have any idea about it?

The letters refer to the possible perf measurements. There's a key on another page on the website, explaining the meaning of each letter:

I had a go at these a few years ago when I was still collecting anything and everything. More spaces than stamps ...
