The Pitchfork: Intermediate or New Stamp

You chose the pitchfork. This is a Hartrick Intermediate Stamp or New Stamp, or possibly a Canadian K. The Arabic section of these stamps is distinct in style from the Old Stamps. The Intermediate and New were in use from 1959 to 1977 when the K Zildjian factory in Istanbul ceased operating. A similar stamp then appeared in Canada when production (and people) moved there from Istanbul.
