I used Stamp Identifier (iOS app) and found the Jordanian and Bahraini stamps in a few seconds. It doesn't recognize the Canadian one, either.

Canada, according to what I found online in VanDam listings, it is an embossed Canada Revenue cheque stamp. Cut out from the cheque. Vandam FCH1

Edit: rectangular embossed is an FCH2

Thanks Stamporator,
I'd like to buy a set of those from you.

I checked my Van Dam (25th Anniv ed) 1994
Unless I am mistaken, not listed then.

Google searching, I was caught out by Canadian vernacular,
I have always known these as "Impressed duty Stamps"
