General Info: Cancel from Italy


This postmark to be applied in Castiglione della Pescaia (Italy), depicts one of the two Mole Lighthouses of the city.  Both lights (North and South) are identical except for the colour. 
We can´t see the colour in this ítem.  The Mole North lighthouse is red, it is active and the code is E-1470.  The other one is blue and it is inactive (ex E-1468).  So if we have to put a name to this, lets go with the active. North E-1470


Thanks Jaap for the alert.
