"Samson Fighting the Lion" (1735) by M. Kozlovsky, Peterhof, St. Petersburg
This stamp was only for sale for a few days from the Russian Stamp Agency before it was withdrawn from sale, due to the fact that Peterhof is a part of St. Petersburg City rather that St. Petersburg Region that the stamp represents. To our knowledge it was never available at regular post offices.
