    Makanudo,you had put me on the wrong trail:
    the stamp is and is not polish !
    It is a postage due stamp from Middle-Lithuania.
    Issued in 1921 the set contains 6 values.Exists
    perforated and imperforated (same prices).
    Yours is Michel Porto no.2.
    In 1923 Middle Lithuania was incorporated into
    Poland.I don´t know,to what country,Poland
    or Lithuania the territory belongs now.
    I also do not know,where and under what name Middle-Lithuania is listed by Scott.

    Makanudo:

    I have never seen one of these before. Don't know what it is. A cinderella perhaps?

    Me neither.
    I know "doplata" means additional charge.

    I can't make out the inscription on top. What does it say?

    Werner,

    Sorry to have misinformed you.
    I thought that if it was written in polish, it would be theirs.
    Geopolitics is a tricky subject.
    Your knowledge proves to be extensive once more Werner.
    Thank you very much for the efort.

    Technically not complete
    First of all although Middle Lithuania is used it is more appropriately called Central Lithuania {1920-22} or Republic of Central Lithuania which is now a dead country that became incorporated into Poland. It can be found in Scotts under Central Lithuania
    The stamps printed by Ludwik Chomiński in Vilnius
    The territory was occupied by Poland so the stamps also considered to be part of Poland and show up in the major Poland Specialized catalogs such as the Fischer Catalog below
