Nice work, gentlemen.
I have fallen for that myself, on several occasions.
(Not purchased, but mounted in wrong space)

I recall a light blue "Newspaper" opt, fooling me.

I have to say though, that eBay listing had a good image, I'm surprised the purchaser did not spot it.
The more I kick tyres on the internet, re Turkey, the more I see wrongly identified stamps, and people buying them, especially the "Imprimes"
It's an absolute minefield.

I lost a bid this morning, nice page of PTT overprints 1916
sold for $58.
Turkey holds very good prices around the sales.
I am glad I got in when I did.

Maybe the market prices on Turkey are having a significant lift by this most inspiring thread of yours - we all want to go deeper into Turkey when reading your posts. Keep it up

Hi Rod,

The red ones are familiar:

The big round red seal is a Turkish telegraph seal from the 1920s.

The dirty red stamp at the bottom is a Persian postage stamp from 1885.

The bottom-right red stamp is a 1927 postage stamp from Hejaz & Nejd.

I think the last (i.e. left hand) word at the top of the big green seal is "Iran".

Thank you Nigel,
I'll chase those up.

Not so disappointed I was outbid now.
Extraordinary price in my opinion.
Haven't won a Turkey Revenue auct for months now.

The top left stamp (blue) appears to be a Saudi Arabian stamp, some sort of Road tax stamp.
Maybe the the middle blue pair are also from Saudi Arabia.

22crows,

I agree the middle pair look very Saudi Arabian.

I think the top left one may be from Egypt as it seems to have a combination of palm trees and pyramids.

pyramids.


Nicely spotted, missed that myself.
I find it rather odd, the motor car is alongside an old locomotive
They look out of context.

Eastern Rumelia (difficult to complete)
1880
Steiner Page 2.

Assume all forgeries, and forged Pmks, on these issues, before proving genuine.

Sc#4 2 Piastres Black greenish blue, CV $110 $20

Secret Mark : Dot inside Pearl, 9 down, Right hand Side.





Another Sc#4 Heavily damaged, but useful in studying the better printed filagree
in the top corners, and to prove consistency, the top right hand "Pearl" is squashed.

I don't know why, when I was de-skewing this image,
into my head popped Mike Oldfield's "Tubular Bells"

When the music is building tension, he introduces "A slightly distorted guitar"............

Sc#41 1874 10pa red violet $25 $10
