Can anyone identify these Grecian-looking stamps?

Post by JasonC »

Hello.

I am at a loss to identify these. They are similar in style to 1860s Greek postage stamps, but the Hermes figure (if that's who it is) faces left and has no wings on his helmet.

There's no indication that they're postage stamps, but what are they?

Any suggestions welcome.

They're newspaper stamps from Austria.

That means: don't write everything in one paragraph. Use many small and have empty lines between them. It makes it easier to read your text.

Hi Jason,

What kuikka means is, please don't write your messages as if they were a text message sent from your phone. Please split your sentences or paragraphs by hitting, "Enter or Return" on your keypad. :)

I hope that this will help. :)

Cheers!
It does pay if you are humble and kind.
