Default Two personal stamps

Good day to all.
Presumably Ottoman personal stamps. Please help with the translation of the text.
I would be very grateful for any of your opinions and information about these things. Assessment of authenticity is welcome

Hi,
There's a date on the bottom one 1272 equating to 1855/56. As for the rest I'm clueless I'm afraid.
Regards,
Norman.

Thank you, Norman.
I also don't understand much about it, because I hope that something can clarify the translation.
I really hope that this topic will be seen by dear Kwiatek and we will learn more
For example: whether this inscription corresponds stylistically to the specified date..

The first is a nice Greek Ottoman seal

نقوله بنده (؟) ولد دمترى

“Nikola Bende (?), son of Dimitri”

The second one, apart from the date of 1272, does not read in any of Arabic, Persian or Turkish and does not look genuine to me. The carving looks very sharp and fresh

Thank you very much, kwiatek.
The second seal caused many doubts, but your help put an end to these doubts.
Thank you again for the translation of the first seal and for the clarity of about the second.
