  • I think it is a Customs Revenue Stamp, but not 100% Sure.
  • Harry, thanks for pointing me in the right direction have a few others I couldn't find that were bob as well. I was about to put them in the unidentified box of material but it's overflowing.
  • Hi Andrew, Is it possible it is a 352 or a 358? check the perfs & color wheel. The word Duanes is French for Customs. I think that may be a hand stamp & not an overprint. Harry is correct about its use. A regular issue called into Customs revenue usage. Best from the Desert, Dan
