Can you make out at least the language of the overprint? Is it Latin? Cyrillic? Armenian???

If I had to venture a guess, the stamps are probably Scott #131. Good luck with the overprint.

I have no answer, but some more questions.

1. Looks Caucasian, but I can't find any reference on it.
2. No clue at all
3. Charity lable of some kind, but what exactly?

The pair is Georgia, 1923. The single stamp is Armenia (1919 or 1920, I forget). The final stamp is one I haven't seen before...

To return to the original post, did anyone ever come up with an answer?

One thing I noticed was that the "P" in the bottom left of each stamp is different. Solid on the left stamp, and hollow outline on the right one. Does anyone know why this would have been done?

Value is 1 zl. It means that stamp was overprinted in Poland.
