    there are not many of what around, could you please be a little more descriptive, and possibly an image or two of what you are looking for, to help us members not familiar with them, have a better idea of how we could help, or not as the case may be.

    many thanks

    Are you talking about stamps from pre-Pakistan?

    Sorry I meant Las Bela stamps, they are not easy to find. I have no images, I have no scanner. I am sure some one will help :)

    No, it is a country, or rather was, few stamps were printed.

    here is one i have, although there were only 5 different stamps issued, and for how rare you say they are this is 1 of 6 issued between 1897-1904, this only has a catalogue value of £9.75.

    i just need to find the other 5 now LOL

    Yes, I thought it was the country that is now known as Pakistan...I may be wrong, just what I thought

    It was a state of India, but may very well now be in the land that was annexed as Pakistan. Out of interest we recently sold a Las Bela used with some damage for the sum of $102 they have become very sought after and the catalogue valuation has yet to catch up. Supply and demand as ever.

    Noticed the edges are not cut, did they tear the stamps along a straight edge???

    They were perforated. Not by a mcahine, but by the postmaster with a pin, during quiet periods. [this is true!]

    If they had to do that by hand, they must not have sold to many stamps.

    It was in the days when a postage stamps cost more than a loaf of rice or a cart of slaves, no one could read or write either except the local police and the man in charge of the drains. That bit about the police is possibly an exaggeration.

    it looks to me that this damage may have been done to the edges while trying to peel it of the paper, as from the back there are like scratch marks, so i would suggest it was cut with scissors then taken off by someone with a screwdriver lol :)
