Before 1916 stamps of Turkey were used in Saudi Arabia. Example of two stamps used in Mecca:
1 Pa lilac 1/8 Pi orange 1/4 Pi green 1/2 Pi red 1 Pi blue 2 Pi red (1917)
This stamp exists in green, red, blue, orange and violet. These bogus stamps seems to have been made in Warsaw (Poland), however other sources say Italy ( http://mysite.freeserve.com/saudi/forgtri.htm ). The mentionned website also shows much more information about these bogus stamps (even perforated stamps seem to exist). They appeared on the market around 1923.
