83, 85, 91 [M-17 Saarinen Lions 5p Green, 10p Red, 25p Blue; without watermark] (VF) on very unusual 22 July 1919 cover from NUMMELA to RAUMO, with receiver, both postmarks with Russian text removed. 40 penni domestic letter rate 15 April 1918 through 19 October 1919 paid by the set of three "UPU colors" stamps; a combination rarely seen on cover and of special significance because the colors of the stamps had meaning in relation to the postage rates for which they were issued. Very nice!
