A nice cover from Latvia

Oleg sent me this cover that I received a couple of days back. Like Ive mentioned before covers with miniature sheets on them are always a delight.

The sheet depicts the Struve Geodetic Arc's elements in Latvia. This construction with other parts situated in Norway, Sweden, Finland, Russia, Estonia, Lithuania, Belarus, Moldova and Ukraine was built in the 19th century to establish the exact shape and size of the earth. In 2005, this complex was inscribed on the World heritage list. Love the sheet and cover.

Thanks Oleg Skleinov
