Tájak városok II. fej

Regions and towns II: Kapuvár, Mátészalka

The two new stamps in Magyar Posta’s series on the subject of Regions and Towns in 2019 feature Mátészalka and Kapuvár, both celebrating their 50th anniversary of becoming a town. As well as showing some main sights, the composition of the stamps allows the position of the towns to be indicated on the map of Hungary. One hundred and twenty thousand copies of the stamps designed by the graphic artist Imre Benedek were produced by ANY Security Printing Company. The new issues are available from Filaposta, philately specialist services, certain post offices and www.posta.hu.
