Mail Me…. Iranian Stamp of 1800s

Iranian stamp Buff, Red & Black from 1882-84.

Note the language next to the Persian, the 2nd language of Iran for many years. Indian postal agencies operated in several regions in Iran from 1857 to 1923 and were the first to do so, Indian stamps were used.  Then Russian post offices operated in 1908-18 in northern Persia using stamps of Russia and the first Iranian stamps were issued in 1868. Geekish? Yes.
