so it appears that the 'postmark' isnt relevant at all to the stamp. besides being on it.. so it is a 1930+ stamp and all is well in the world!

If you ask a question, wait for a reply, presuming can get one into bother..

I must try exercise some patience and a display a little less ignorance... I am looking at the stamp which converts to 24 of may of the year showa 12 which is 1937. I can then see that the stamp is either a 201 or a 212. thank you rod

Be advised, however, that Heisei is no longer the current era. The new era, Reiwa, began with the ascension of the Emperor Naruhito to the Chrysanthemum Throne on 1 May 2019.

Ignorance is fine...it is the precursor to learning anything
We should not be embarrassed with ignorance, just bad manners.

My favourite clanger, was asking about an Italian stamp (2 cents) inscribed due centismo, I took it as a Postage Due
