2020 Estonia Lighthouse Stamp

**Updated with additional information 11/28/2020

This is incredible! Eesti Post has issued another stamp in it’s long-running lighthouse series. This is the 21st consecutive year that Estonia has issued at least one stamp in this series. On 30 Oct 2020, this stamp was issued showing Kihnu Lighthouse which is located at the south end of Kihnu Island in the northeastern part of the Gulf of Riga. The lighthouse was built of modular iron plates in England and assembled on site in 1864.
