They are Chinese revenue stamps.

The top one is a savings stamp. Not sure on the revenue purpose of the bottom one.

They are not listed in the standard stamp catalogs.

The bottom stamp is also a postal savings stamp, as inscribed in the top character panel for both stamps.

Thanks for the additional information,Kim. I thought it was, but wasn't sure.

Those character panels don't look the same to me. Guess I need to brush up on my Greek.

re: China: Postal savings stamps

Agreed. The characters look different because the fonts are different -- but the characters in the respective top/bottom panels of both stamps are the same.

I didn't realize you wanted more info...

$5 old coins:
-- issued in 1943 by Central Trust of China
-- part of set of 6 (50c, $1, $2, $5, $10, $20)
-- exist both perforate and imperforate

$5 Lin-Sen:
-- issued in 1943? (if not 1943, then 1942, not sure)
-- part of set of 4 (50c, $1, $2, $5)
-- exists perf 10-11.5

Postal savings stamps were taken off sale in June 1945.
