Hi all! I am going through some material and I found these stamps from Cuba. I currently do not have a book with Cuba in it. Does anyone know of a good site online where I may find information on these stamps? I appreciate any assistance I am given. I thank you in advance.

I believe they are used on checking accounts - "giro" means checking

Petert4522.....Thank you for that. Your reply pushed me in a different direction and I believe I have it figured out.
General Interbank Recurring Order (GIRO) is an automated electronic payment service which allows you to make monthly payment to the billing organization (BO) from your bank account directly. The amount will be deducted from your DBS or POSB account and paid to your BO every month, upon the BO's request.
I am guessing that after the auto payment came out of your account, the bank made up a receipt or something and put those stamps on it. The snip I added here is an example.

'automated electronic payment service' in the 19th Century. Now THAT is being ahead of their time!

"Giro" is an Spanish word that means "money order". It was the usual way on sending money by pos. There were issued stamps to pay for that.
I was sending money by "giro". up to around 2000, to provide funds for my philatelic service accounts.
It has nothing to do with any phantasy English wording. Electronics on late XIX century?
