I found this stamp and have not been able to find it anywhere.
There is a pen cancel so my assumption is that it is a revenue stamp.
'GADO' is Portuguese for 'COW'
Perhaps is is Brazilian?



Any help would be most appreciated

Nice one Rod222.

GADO was a bus company operating in the northern provinces of Groningen and Drente: N.V. Groninger AutobusDienst Onderneming (Groningen Bus Service Company Ltd.). It was based in Hoogezand, a town in Groningen Province, and from 1958 in the provincial capital Groningen. The company, for a long time, was owned by the Dutch national railways (NS).

From what I can find, the stamp paid for press items transported by bus. "Pers" is the Dutch word for press. I think the addressee is Red - "Het Nieuwsblad." This was a newspaper. Red, most likely is either the editor (redacteur) or the editing office (redactie) of that newspaper.

Aha! Thanks NSK.
Googling, I had something like "Press Business Letter"
But I wasn't game enough to offer a "Guess"

Not seen this label in 20 years of collecting worldwide.

...and thanks to you rrogers,

It is always a delight to see a query married to a crisp, clear high resolution, deskewed image.
Take 10 points!
