Hungarian currency was 100 filler = 1 korona (Hungarian for "crown). Magyar Kir. Posta (Magyar Királyi) means Hungarian Royal Post.
Below is the 75f (Scott #120) with a good clear postmark, dated May 2, 1918, showing it was placed on an item mailed from the resort town of Balatonederics, on Lake Balaton, the largest lake in central Europe.

The 1k (Scott #122) is shown below. This stamp appears to have a postmark dated November 12, 1918, one day after the armistice that ended World War One, with Hungary sustaining a catastrophic defeat.
The 1916-1918 stamps of Hungary are very common, for no more than a few dollars one could collect all of them. The value of stamps as collector's items has to do with rarity, not their intrinsic attractiveness or historical interest.
