First three are Swiss, then Mozambique, Germany, last one on top row is Spain or a Spanish possession like Cuba/Puerto Rico or Philippines.
Spanish Tangier then Spanish colony (likely Africa, can't make out the text even enlarging the image)

re: Telegraph stamps help needed

Hi Brian,

The fourth stamp is a postal tax stamp from Mozambique.

The sixth stamp is a war tax stamp from Spain.

These are both listed in regular stamp catalogues.

The last two are charity labels collecting funds for orphans of the telegraph service.

re: Telegraph stamps help needed

nigelc is correct on the stamps he noted! The last 2 Spanish Civil War Charity were issues to raise money for war orphans.
The 5th stamp over I need to have blown up bigger to place it!

Hey Brian, Mike here! Thank You!

You have a German Empire Telegraph stamp #16 issued 1875 & used value in 1982 was .50!

The catalog I have is "Telegraph & Telephone Stamps Of The World" by Hiscocks.

re: Telegraph stamps help needed

Hi Brian,

As Roy said, this is a German telegraph stamp. It's from the second (1875) set.

The design is basically the same as the earlier North German Confederation telegraph stamps with text changes.

Edit: I see Warrehouse beat me to it using the same reference!
