Berlin Packetfahrt Gesellschaft operated a private courier service in Berlin, Germany from February 13, 1884 until March 31, 1900, when they were forced to cease operations along with all of the other private "city mail" courier services in Germany.

In 1896, the company issued four, 3 pf diamond-shaped stamps of identical design in different colors publicizing the Berlin Trade Exhibition. The violet stamp (Mi #63) is shown.

On September 18, 1999 Lithuania issued this one lita stamp (Sc #643) as a part of its Municipal Arms series. Stamp depicts the coat of arms of Siauliai, located in the north central part of the country. Siauliai (pop. 101,500) is Lithuania's fourth largest city.

From heraldry.wiki.com, ":...arms were granted on November 9, 1791...the (attacking) bear of the Duchy of Samoglia...above is a Ducal crown."

Booklet pane featured 2 different 10 santims stamps and a 5 santims stamp. The stamp featuring the bear illustration (Sc #390) is shown here.

Here is Lithuania's October 23, 1999, 70 centas stamp (Sc #647) commemorating the bicentenary of the birth of writer Simonas Stanevicius (1799 - 1848). Stanevicius's most memorable stories deal with fables and folklore.

From wikipedia, "(A) most important fable is Arklys ir Meska (The Horse and the Bear)...as they depict the worldview, values and culture of everyday Samogitian peasants."
