I have these three stamps and have tried my best to identify them.




The first one I believe to be 1888 Bamra and SG1.(Not too sure about the last character)
The second is a pair of 1890/93 SG10 1/4 anna with different centre motifs.

The last stamp is possibly from Bundi and has a red overprint?. Could it be an official stamp as I cannot make out the wording. Could it be SG O6a ?
Any suggestions would be appreciated as the first stamp could be worth quite a bit if genuine.

Your Bundi stamp is type C inscription, so is SG O15a.

As stated, you have shown the same stamp twice.

You are correct with the pair being Bamra SG 10.

Sorry to disappoint you, but this is one of the 'reprints' or 'resettings' of the Bamra anna and sadly not of great value - maybe a pound/dollar or two on a good day

It is one of the 'first resettings', as described in the next post below, which are not as common as the 'second resettings'.

Can I thank all of those who have responded to my post. This forum is so helpful to "non experts" like me and despite all the catalogues, some things are not covered simply enough.
Thanks again

Kingscorner,

Collecting for the enjoyment of collecting, whatever that might be, is the name of the game. Don't hesitate to ask questions especially if you need basic information and especially more advanced sources of information for any possible topic. You should be able to find folks on this board a little further along on their collecting journey glad to share experiences. Russ
