I'm guessing these are perhaps Turkey revenue stamps? Thoughts? Thanks

I have never seen these before, but they look more like Saudi Arabia. See the Hejaz listings at the beginning of Saudi Arabia in Scott. Regardless, I believe they are probably revenues or something like that.

Saudi Arabia . 1923 fantasy issue.
See the Sept 15 2013 description by "bamra1" in the discussion board " please help id these triangles".

I have the exact same 5 stamps. Don't know if there are any more, and I have been looking for them over the last 5 years...so that may be all there is?

re: Can You Identify Where These Triangles Are From

Chapier and Stirling only mention those 5 triangles.

I recall seeing a 1922 cancel on one. You may want to take a careful look at the postmarks and see if they shed any light. My memory could very well be off. Regardless of when they were canceled, it's possible they weren't released for sale until 1923 (remember, it's all bogus anyway).

re: Can You Identify Where These Triangles Are From

The values are supposed to be:

50 paras blue
75 paras red
1 piastre green
2 piastres orange
5 piastres purple

These values in arabic numerals are in pale characters on the two coloured areas towards the bottom corners

re: Can You Identify Where These Triangles Are From

50 and 75 paras seem very unlikely values to me as one Turkish piastre/kurush was divided into forty paras.
