Hi
Finally have some time to review my collection. I would appreciate any feedback what stamp it is. Country and year.

Petert4522's answer is correct.

It all is on the stamp.

Correio(s) is the Portuguese word for post(s).
The frame reads Estados Unidos do Brazil (United States of Brasil).
The banner below the portrait reads cem 100 reis, cem meaning 100.

The datestamp appears to be from (N)OV 97 (so November 1897).

Agree with Greg,
albeit, I do not have the specialist Catalogue,
I have it as Sc# 116
This stamp appears with 5 differing heads.
