Hi,

Yes, these are all Greek revenues.

The third one is a supplementary tax stamp from a long set issued in 1920.

The main text on each one says "Kingdom of Greece".

re: Unknown Greece

Hi rrr,

I don't know what's happened in this case but often documents receive a perforated cancellation of some kind.

Here are three examples on British Foreign Bill revenues:

The perfin reads:

CANCELLED / N B of I Ld

i.e. Cancelled / National Bank of India, London

re: Unknown Greece

Just curious, if the perfins end up losing perforations because of the process is it considered to be damage?
