The one on the left is Czechoslovakia Scott# 84. the others are Scott# 83 or 83b depending on the perforations. 83 is Perf. 14 and 83b is 13-1/2. They are from a set issued from 1920-5.

re: Unknow airmails

The postmarks are very strategically placed to make the country name virtually undecipherable. Did they do it deliberately ?

For those of us who have been around the block a few times you don't need to see the name. The design and treatment says it all. You can often look at a stamp and know immediately where it was designed and printed. It is useful when trying to ID revenue stamps and the like - they often have a "family-likeness" to postage stamps.
