Unidentified Italian Playing-Card Tax Stamps
This page shows stamps which I could not yet identify, but which are definitely from Italy
or its former colonies or occupied countries.
Please send any
information you may have to the address in the bottom line. Your help is much
When a stamp has been identified, I shall keep it here for some time together
with a pointer, so that you can find out where it went.
This stamp (left) from some Italian state is on Trump XXI of a Minchiate pack by an unknown maker.
I cannot recognise the coat-of-arms shown in the middle. The text is 'CARTE DA GIUOCO'.
Possibly the right stamp might help. It is on Trump XXX of the same pack.

This stamp is on the One of Coins of an Italian pack made by A. Viassone in Torino.
The coat-of-arms shown in the middle resembles one used in the Kingdom of Italy, 1848 to 1870.
This does not really make sense as the cards are definitely more modern.
It has been suggested that the stamp might be from a country occupied by Italy in WWII, or under Italian influence at that time,
e. g. Montenegro.

This stamp is on the One of Coins of a pack made by Piatnik in Vienna.
The text in the middle looks like a date, but it is not readable.
The text at the bottom might be 'NAPOLI' but the beginning is too blurred to be sure about it.
There is a second completely blurred stamp an the card.

This stamp is on the Ace of Hearts of a French-suited standard pack made by Camoin in Marseille.
The text in the middle seems to be a date from 1924.
Nothing of the text around the border is really readable, except a 'G2 at the beginning on the right.
The stamp is supposed to be Italian because of the coat-of-arms at the top, where the vertical stripes might signify
the heraldic red.
