HUNGARY - 2016

***  BREAKING NEWS ***


Yes, I believe that this deserve the title "Breaking News" based in the fact that it comes from Hungary, a country with almost none lighthouse stamps. The only 3  issued by Magyar Posta are from 1978 and 1980.  So 36 years later,   be this block very welcome.

The graphic composition of the Minisheet depicts landmarks of differents capitals and big cities from Europe. The interesting for us is from Malta.

And a prediction... We will be seeing this lighthouse or his brother St.Elmo, next year.  And in an issue from a country that is not Malta too.
