Spanish term or phrase: P.B.
National tax stamp (timbre nacional) in a document from Panama.
In the bottom right-hand corner it says "P.B.". This seems to appear on ALL tax stamps on notarial records, etc., from Panama.

There's an example here, on the first page, in the top right-hand corner: "P.B. 0944": https://fundacioncapital.org/wp-content/uploads/2019/03/6.Es...

Mine is exactly the same just the number is different.

It might just be a numbering system for the stamp (although it does contain other numbers besides that one), based on what I read here: https://forum.wordreference.com/threads/p-b.3610586/

I expect it's inconsequential in the grand scheme of things, but all the same I'd like to know...

Anyone?
