Italian term or phrase: Pos. (abbreviation)
Si tratta di un'abbreviazione: Pos. + numero a cinque cifre. Si trova in fondo a un estratto di certificato di nascita rilasciato da un Consolato, dalla parte sinistra subito dopo un'altra abbreviazione: Matr. + una cifra. Penso che Matr. + cifra deve riferirsi un Registro in cui si segnano i certificati rilasciati. Ma Pos.+ cifra?
Spero che qualcuno mi potra aiutare.

Grazie mille,

neutral  philgoddard: I agree that it stands for "posizione", but "position" is not the correct translation. Further down in your reference, someone says "registration", which I agree with.

This is confirmed by Antonio's reference, and by this, which translates "posizione meccanografica" as "computer-assigned reference number":

This says " item":
