Comment: This is a excellent FDC.
1. The new issue stamp appears Basanavičius' figure, so my friend added an old Basanavičius stamp on the FDC for the additional postage.
2. This FDC was sent from
Vilnius Central Post Office which is the nearest post office from Signatarų namai (Signatory's House) Map Link...
