Cover from Lithuania

I think this is the first time I show on my blog a cover from Lithuania. This is not the first time I get some mail from this country, but this is the first time I get such a nice and clean one.

Some words about the stamps. The one on the right belongs to a series about famous people. In this series, started around 1993 I think, three stamps are issued each year. The one on the cover was issued on the 11th of February 2006 and pictures Adolfas Sapoka (1906-1961) a Lithuanian historian.
The stamp on the left belong to another series about Lithuanian churches. This one was issued on the 3rd of September 2005 and pictures the Vilnius Evangelical Lutheran Church that was founded in 1555.
The postmark from Pakruojis is very clean, even if a little bit heavy. A rather simple but nice cover at the end.

salut Eric,

en consultant le site consacré aux timbres de préfecture japonais, je suis tombé sur un timbre assez amusant pour ta thématique "frog" :

mais peut-être l'avais déjà tu trouvé
merci pour ton message sur le double affichage sur les timbres estoniens ;-))
A bientôt

Eric
