2 RIJKSTELEGRAAF seals, and a 'GOUVERNEMENTS POST-EN TELEGRAAFDIENST'.
That's 2 State Telegraphs and a 'Governmental Post and Telegraph Service'.

Steve Hiscocks made a start on cataloguing seals of the world in a book he published in 2007.
It was his hope to update it later, but unfortunately that was not to be.
His original book can be viewed at Telegraph Seals: A World Catalogue. There are links from the pages to my updates.

Alternatively you can view the latest page for The Netherlands.
