Anyone have any idea on these two Bolivian stamps? They are dated 1944 and 1945, but I can't find them in the catalogue.



Thanks

1945 - Pro BENI Department on their centenary (100th anniv.)
Compl. set:



In below stamp the text mean:

Recargo del 20% = 20% surcharge
Ley de 1 Febrero de 1945 = Law of 1 february 1945
Pro desayuno y ropero escolar = Pro breakfast and school wardrobe

It must be a charity stamp to raise funds

Thanks very much for the intel.
I believe the second stamp is a revenue.

The "Pro Desayuno" stamp was issued originally in 1945 in denominations of 20 centavos, 40 centyavos, and 1 Boliviano. The 10 centavos stamp was issued a bit later, first in red orange and with perfs either 12 or 11. Listed as number LC12 and 12a in the Hilchey and Akerman catalog of Bolivian reRevenues. First litho printing was by Talleres Offset. Later litho by Don Bosco in Pale Vermilion with varying shades, #LC20, perf 11.5. They're pretty common and low valued.
