Estonia 2017 Lighthouse Stamps

Eesti Post has just released the latest in their annual lighthouse stamp series.  These two stamps feature the range lights (leading lights) for the small harbor of Orjaku on the island of Kassari. A photo and map location for the front light is here and for the rear light here. The stamps are available in sheets of 20 with lighthouses shown on the labels. This series of stamps was begun in 1996 and hopefully there are enough lighthouses in Estonia to keep the series active for many more years to come.

2016 Estonia Lighthouse Stamp

Since 1996 Eesti Post has issued at least one stamp in the lighthouse and nautical chart series each year. The latest in this series will be issued on 27 Oct 2016 – in just a few days. It features Virtsu Lighthouse. The original lighthouse on this sight was destroyed by Russian forces in 1917 and it’s replacement was subsequently destroyed by retreating German forces in 1944. The current lighthouse was built in 1951. Let’s hope it has a long and useful life.
