I've spent the last several years slowly whittling away at identifying and cataloging tens of thousands of stamps my grandfather passed on to me. As of today I completed the task, save for these seven that I cannot find anywhere in my Scott catalogs. I've also added my best guess for the origin of the stamps, but again, these are ones that I cannot find anywhere in my catologs, perhaps due to being Cinderellas, non-issued, revenue stamps, etc. Any help would be much appreciated.

Image
1. Obviously Asian - possible Cinderella?

Image
2. Turkish is my best guess

Image
3. Iran or Iraq?

Image
4. Italian revenue or semi-postal?

Image
5. No idea - several countries have issued "Te Betalen" (postage due) stamps, but I cannot narrow this one down to any issuing country. Can't find anything among Belgium / France / Netherlands or their associated African colonies.

Image
6. Looks like a classic Thai stamp

Image
7. I think it may be an early Brazil issue, but really can't discern anything. Just posting it on a long shot =)

the second stamp says "1918" and "1334" but the rest is too blurry to make out. (Dates in both European and Arabic calendars?)

the 3rd stamp says "Republic of Syria" in Arabic.

the 6th stamp looks to be from Siam (Thailand)

Stamp No.4

Saint Anthony's Guide
Safe mail delivery: A custom has been handed down of marking the letters "S.A.G." somewhere on a letter or package. These initials stand for "St. Saint Anthony Guide". This prayer dates to an incident in July 1729 in Spain. A merchant's wife, in need of support from her husband on business in Peru placed a letter to him in the sleeve of St. Anthony's statue in her parish church, trusting he would somehow deliver it.

Returning to the statue the next day, she found not her own letter but one from her husband, Don Antonio. Lodger in the sleeve was a heavy pouch containing 300 pesos, also sent by him. The merchant advised his wife that a letter from her had been delivered "by a friar of the Order of St. Francis." Don Antonio was sending his reply through the same friar. To this day, the merchant's letter is preserved in the church at Oviedo.

This story led to the custom of placing "S.A.G." on mail and praying that St. Anthony give it safe passage.

St. Anthony's Guild offers packets of stamps imprinted with S.A.G. and pictures of the Saint. To request the stamps, write:

The Franciscans, St. Anthony's Guild
Paterson NJ
07509-2948

Did you find an answer to your stamp inquiry. Particularly the St. Anthony SAG stamp?
I'm asking because I have a book of them, hand bound with a staple as the binder. I found them over 10 years ago. I inquired about them then and was able to track them back to the Franciscan's in New Jersey. They have the same design as yours. At the time, I spoke to a representative there and was told that that design had been used over 90 years ago, at that time. I'm curious if you were able to find out any more about them.
Thanks.
PS I notice you are from Canada. These stamps were found in a region of Northern New York, USA which has a rich history of Canadian loggers (French Canadian's) coming to the area to work as lumberjacks. The stamp is traditionally used, affixed on the back of a letter to a loved one to insure "safe passage". The SAG stands for St. Anthony Guide (incorrect). It actually stands for St. Anthony Guild.

No. 2 - Since you said you use Scott, here's a trick you should learn.

First identify the stamp without the overprint. If you don't recognize it as
Turkey, go to the Illustrated Identifier in the back of the catalog and you
will find that exact stamp illustrated there.

Your unoverprinted stamp is design A22 and the catalog no. is 237, the
low value of the set 237-46 issued in 1913.

Following the set listing is a footnote - "For overprints and surcharges see
Nos. ...". Start checking all of the stamps listed. Do it carefully, because
I missed it the first time.

Your overprinted stamp is no. 568, issued in 1919 for the "Accession to
the throne of His Majesthy, 3rd July 1334-1918". This is part of a long set
(565-82 plus 4 postage dues). The overprint on the stamp that Scott
illustrates for this set is a bit different than the overprint on your stamp,
which caused me to miss it the first time.

Using this process to identify overprinted stamps almost always works.
It isn't perfect because Scott isn't perfect.
