Klaipėda 1958



This is a full set of the Soviet souvenir sheets commemorating the 100 years of Russian postage stamp, cancelled in Клайпеда /  Klaipėda, Lithuania SSR. Both souvenir sheets still have gum on the back which tell us that all the postmarks on them are actually CTOs most probably privately ordered since there wasn't any commercial mass production of CTO in Klaipėda as far as I know.

  2. Thanks Keijo! but the price wasn't that lovely, I had pay slightly over Michel CV. I'd doubt the other bidder also collect Soviet Lithuanian postmark but I think that non-Moscow or non-Leningrad postmark attracts more attention to some bidders.
