150th Anniversary of the Unification of Italy II

I've already talked about the 150th anniversary of the Italian Unification and the issue of 9 miniature sheets by Poste Italiane here.  Today, I show you the sheet issued jointly by Italy and San Marino.  It shows, on the right of the stamp, the portraits of Anita and Giuseppe Garibaldi, and on the left, the Towers atop Mount Titano that symbolise the Republic of San Marino.

Thanks Ivan for your nice cover and the maxicard above.  This 60c stamp was issued on 13 January 1983 by Deutsche Bundespost Berlin (German Federal Mail of Berlin), the former governmental agency providing mail and telecommunication services for West Berlin from 1949 until 1990.
