Hi all! I'm looking for a Scott number or at least the right country reference for this stamp:

One website indicated it was British Postal Agencies in Eastern Arabia

SG number 65... unfortunately my Scott Catalog shows no such country reference, so I can't find the Scott number for it. I have an identical one with Qatar, but this one, as you can see, has no reference to Qatar on it...

Would anyone have any thoughts as to where I could find it in Scott?

Thanks kids! Sorry I haven't been around otherwise... been a busy time!

It is a 1957 Omani stamp.

It should be listed as Scott number 65 or 79 depending on the watermark (yeah, same number as SG).

These stamps were used in Oman / Muscat.
