Only the two rather nicely designed seals shown below have so far come to light.

Updates. The above was written by Steve Hiscocks.
I have added another. No pricing as yet.

RH3 3 1 1990? Perf. 14 Black on white. 1925 Vytis & 'Pillars of Gediminids'. - - -






Again only two designs of seal are known and these have not been seen on telegrams, so dates of use are not known.

Updates. The above was written by Steve Hiscocks.
I have updated the images and corrected the sequence. No pricing yet.

I have 6 examples of H1, but only 1 of H1a.



Etiquette ?  Etiquette ?  Etiquette ?
These are probably etiquettes, I do not know if they were used as seals, or the dates of them. They all have embossing, strongest on the central one.
Left pair:   Diameter of outer black rim 31mm, black on orange(6-pointed stars) or red(5-pointed stars) surface-coated paper.
Right:  Width 27mm, orange-red on greenish paper.



If anyone can provide scans to help with this, I am happy to give appropriate credit.
