This is the last stamp in my "unknown" envelope, for now anyway. I cannot read the origin/too faded. I do recognize a "P" in the lower right. Poland perhaps? Does anyone recognize the symbol or design? The perf has the letters "PMKB", but it was made to be recognized from the back of the stamps, before it was used, which I find interesting.Image Not Found

re: Faded Perf

I believe it should read something like Magyarkir Posta, which means it is from Hungary.

I am by no means an expert or qualified in identification. However I know there is a city in Romania by the name of Deva. Perhaps this might help.

re: Faded Perf

it's Hungarian.

when it was issued, Deva was part of Hungary; Today, as the Pastor notes, it's in Romania. I don't know how cities can travel so far, but they do. Plate tectonics?

Oh, wait, no, it was Versailles, yes, the treaty of Versailles

re: Faded Perf

Good memory, David. In WW I, Hungary was part of the Austro-Hungarian Empire, one of the Central Powers along with Germany and the Ottoman Empire. Romania was allied with the Triple Entente (France, Great Britain, and Russia, late joined by the US). Since Romania's side won, Romania got a large chunk of the Hungarian part of the Austro-Hungarian Empire as spoils of war.

Royalstranger,

The perfin (not perf) is the anti-pilfering security mark of Pesti Magyar Kereskedelmi Bank - Hungarian Commercial Bank of Pest.

Here's an image of a 5 Krone that has fared a little better (Magyar Kir. Posta; Hungarian Royal Post):
