Guessing.
Amongst Poster Stamps.
Possibly Matchbox Labels.

Rod,

Are you sure those are Estonian? Lahti is a town in Finland.
OTK:n matches are from Tampere in Finland.

I believe they are both Finnish. The blue one appears to be a matchbox label.

Estonian was not really appreciated during Soviet times, limiting the possibility of Estonian origin. Tulitikk are matches, so yes, most likely both are Finnish matchbox labels.

I think the ever alert NSK has correctly answered this but Google translate tells me that erkkikaapa means bay window in Finnish, and porin tulittikutehdas means Pori match factory. Pass me a box of bay windows isn't something you often hear but no stranger I suppose than let me have a woodbine!

An idea for a trip after COVID-19 restrictions will have been lifted.

Looking for "bay window"in Wikipedia and finding the finnish page leads to "erkkeri." The Germanic "erker" can be recognised here.
https://fi.wiktionary.org/wiki/erkkeri

I think Google translate found this as closest match and translated "erkkikääpä" as bay window. Note it does not say erkkikääpä, but Erkki Kääpä.
https://www.pinterest.ca/pin/738379...b_unauth_id={{default.session}}&simplified=true

There was a Mr. Erkki Kääpä born in Kivennapa on 4 May 1898. He died in Lahti in 1959. Maybe he was the founder? I cannot really find any reference to this. The Kääpä family from Kivennapa is a family of merchants since the 1840s and Erkki (Eric) appears to be a name that family uses.

[quote]I suppose than let me have a woodbine!/quote]

Triple Wow!
In my distant youth, my Mum would say
"Go get me 3 woodbines Luv!" at Symes deli
Yeovil Somerset.
I must have been 5 or so at the time
A Woodbine was a brand of cigarette.


Seems like another world.

Here is a special cancel of Tallinn dated Oct. 15, 1993. It is "White Cane (Awareness) Day", to make motorists and others aware that blind people are moving amongst us.

Thanks Rod.

Here is an interesting modern postal marking. It is incomplete, but shows most of the RAKVERE town name. The aurochs, or bull in the center of the cancel seems to confirm that this is correct. The cancel is most likely from 2006; it is on a 2006 coat of arms stamp. It has the look of a supplementary/revenue protection cancel.

The wording on the bottom of the cancel means "full of power".

From wikipedia, "Rakvere is also known now for its Tarvas (bronze) statue of an aurochs, which was made by the Estonian sculptor Tauno Kangro (b. 1966)...It is situated on Vallimagi hill (in front of the old Rakvere castle) and was erected for the town's 700th birthday (2003)."

Some years ago I bought a relatively large bargain lot of mint, modern, demonetized Estonian Arms definitives. Included in the lot were these two "starter" coil strips of the dark olive, September 25, 1992, "X" (10 senti) stamps. The strips have a piece of the coil leader attached and the printed number "00" marking.

I have never seen coils with these counting numbers. In my experience with European stamps, the leader strip of 5 stamps has no marking on the first stamp, but the fifth stamp has a counting # ("05" or "005"), but the fifth stamp on these strips has no such printing.

Does anyone know about these coils? Does every fifth stamp on the roll have a counting number?

Nice find Bob.
Interesting, I had thought these were control numbers, not counting numbers. (Same number on every ?th stamp )
Any idea of the printing house?
The Swiss used every 5th stamp in their coils, not aware if they were "counting"

Took a reconnoitre through Estonia Handbook, Catalogue 1986
Hurt / Ojaste

No reference to control marks on coils.
(Not aware of when Estonia first produced coils)
