Well, at least I got to have a haircut in the Penny Lane barber shop.

A mystery to me anyway. I can't find any matching characters. The stamp itself is rather thin, with raggedy perforations.

Henry Pu Yi portrait, on stamps from Manchuko? Japanese installed puppet emperor during occupation, I believe.

Nope, I was wrong. Now looks to me like Chiang Kai-shek prior to 1940.

Got em! China, not People's Republic of China, or Republic of China.
Scott 724 and 725 of Oct 31, 1946.
Chiang Kai-shek's 60th birthday.

Yes Michael; however the Taiwan printings have extra Chinese characters printed on both sides of Chiang's head.
I had missed them when I perused Scott Taiwan, before seeing your post.

I didn't mean to say that the stamp were printed for use in China and the other two areas, but that is how it reads. There are three different sets of the same design. Thanks for supplementing my response.
