Anyone one want to guess or have a lead I could run down?

I think I can see an "On H M S" overprint in the general arrangement of the Indian official issues of 1874-1909 (the H. M. S. are not in a straight line, but the M is under the H and S). Those stamp issues were perforated, but this could be a postal stationery cut square with the same overprint.

Maybe with back lighting the original stamp design would be easier to see?

France or Tunisia ?
The numeral looks French or French possessions.

I realized 2 days ago what it was from the lines at the top right and the one in the circle as well as the "postes" at the bottom. Took a picture but was unable to locate thread. Now I find the thread because others are posting. It obviously appears to be France. It appears the same as the 1c gray, 1900 to 1929 issue of Liberty, Equality and Fraternity, but that is shown as perf 14 x 13 1/2 and listed as Scott #109. I did not check to see if there was an earlier imperf version.

It might be a cut-out from a wrapper

Nice Vayolene. I did not think of them. I think it is a mystery no longer.
