The 1 st. cover (ex Hitzler) is tied by the exceptionally rare triangular "PLOVDIV CITY POST" and is thought to be the only cover in existence where this cachet is used to cancel the adhesive; cover with its original contents and a translation. The 5 st. cover cancelled by the Plovdiv bilingual datestamp with the local post handstamp struck on the front. The total number of recorded items is minimal, thus this page represents two of the finest examples known. Both items are accompanied by multiple opinions including two Penev opinions (2021).
