re: Is this a Perfin? or WHAT

Definitely looks like a perfin to me, but I only have a reference to the perfins of Ireland. The perfin club has a list of reference books;

http://www.perfins.org/

And here is a link to the Hungarian perfin club;

Ireland has a few perfins that are not letters such as a castle and a shamrock, so perfins aren't necessarily letters. Let us know what you discover.

re: Is this a Perfin? or WHAT

"According to Michel catalogue, these perfins where used to prevent speculative buying of stamps during 1921-1924. The perfin holes can be found only for the two middle horizontal or vertical stamp rows of full sheets.

I remember hearing (from a friend who visited Hungary), that these perfin stamps are sold usually nearly double the normal rate in Hungarian stamp shops. Some special issues are worth much more. Don't know if it's true, but I have no reason to doubt.

re: Is this a Perfin? or WHAT

They are called "hármaslyuk" (triplehole) or "hármaslyukasztás" (triplehole punch) and apparently
are listed in the SCOTT 2012 CLASSIC SPECIALIZED CATALOG.

Scott (supposedly) says that from 1921 to 1924, the two center rows of panes were punched on some stamps sold at post offices. If dealers and collectors wanted unpunched stamps, they had to buy them at the philatelic agency at 10% over face.
