Lithuania's 1st Independence Issues - Set of 4 - 1990 Complete Mint Set of 4

After 50 years under Russian control, Lithuania became the first Republic to announce its independence from the Soviet Union. That bold move prompted other Soviet Republics to declare independence that quickly led to the breakup of the USSR. This first issue, printed locally in imperforate form on ungummed paper, features an angel symbolizing independence over a map of the nation, with simulated printed perforations. (Lithuania #375-78)
