It would be interesting to see if this new study has anything to say about possible revenue stamps of the Bangkok consulate.

Barefoot lists one Straits Settlements revenue with a "B" overprint (presumably similar to the postal issues) which was reportedly used for consular purposes, but the catalogue does not provide an illustration and there is a note that its status is uncertain - so it is possible that it is a bogus issue.
