Baltic States*

Date of issue: ?
Name of issue: Freedom for the Baltic states

Number of arachnid related stamps in issue: 1/1

This is an anti-communism cinderella propaganda stamp. Although not a postage stamp, as far as I know, this is the oldest stamp of any sort depicting an arachnid (the oldest postage stamp is the 1965 Togo Pandinus imperator). I do not know the exact year that this stamp was issued, but I do have a picture on file of one used on an envelope stamped in 1951.

Michel #: none - cinderella
 order: Araneae
family: Araneidae (??)
