tarjeta (identificativa) con sellos de emergencia ?????

No estoy nada convencida, pero a lo mejor van por aquí los tiros. Puede que se trate de un tipo de tarjeta de identificación (visado/pasaporte/residencia) establecido con sellos de emergencia. Para que sepas lo que son los sellos de emergencia te mando este link:

Otra historia sobre los sellos de emergencia:

The Cold War
In 1990 the Danish General Post Office (GPO) contacted the Danish Philatelic Federation (DFF) and told us a fascinating story about the Danish Emergency Stamp (shown to the right).
Around 1960 the situation between "East" and "West" was as "cold" as it could be. Fearing a war, the Danish government drew up contingency plans which have still not been made public, according to Danish law. A part of these plans dealt with the Danish Postal Service. A decision was made in 1963 to print 2,000,000 sheets of Emergency Stamps, each sheet with 100 stamps. The format was a printing sheet with four panes (four stamp sheets) each of 100 stamps. The stamps were produced by the private printing house of J. Jørgensen & Co., who were normally used when some of our stamps need to be surcharged to a new value.

Why They were Manufatured
Let us look back in time a little. If a war situation arose, and normal postal service was impossible, especially if ships in regular service in our belts had to be stopped, the Danish government wanted the postal service to continue as normal as possible in all parts of the country. Therefore, eight different post offices in Denmark received a sealed package each containing 500 sheets of Emergency Stamps, instructions for use AND a printing forme to make it possible for the post office have a local printing works produce more Emergency Stamps if necessary! (This means that only 8 x 500 = 4,000 sheets of the 2,000,000 sheets were distributed to the eight post offices and the remaining 1,996,000 sheets were kept in Copenhagen).
Together with the package there was an instruction note for the receiver. This note stated that the package could only be opened when an order to do so came directly from the government. None of the employees at these eight post offices were informed of the contents of the package.

As time passed and the progress of technology made it possible to handle such a war situation in other ways (e.g. the use of franking machines), our GPO realized that it was no longer necessary to have such Emergency Stamps available, but the packages were still kept at the eight post offices.

tarjeta con timbrado de/para emergencias...

Pura especulación: pareciera que deben pagar un timbrado/sellado especial por emitir el certificado con carácter "de emergencia".

Si consigues la versión farsi, yo también te puedo conseguir averiguar lo que dice; por acá, en la Costa del Sol, abundan los traductores de ese idioma.

Suerte!!! La necesitas....
