Finland 1998 Valentine Day ‘With Friendship’ miniature sheet featuring Stamps with Scratch off coatings

Issue date 03 February 1998

On the occasion of Valentine's Day, Finland Post has issued a miniature sheet featuring the greetings and gifts given during valentine's day with a scratch-off heart. When the heart is scratched off, one of six different images appears. Each stamp has a heart-shaped scraping surface hiding a lovely picture of friendship

The images hidden by the overlaid heart are musical notes with two dogs, an elephant with a mouse and flowers, a puppy with a sealed envelope, kittens hugging, a dog with flowers and rodents with flowers.

The stamp's animal motifs - cats, dogs, mice and elephants -
are depicted on the margins of the miniature sheet as well. The
margins also provide friendship greetings in Finnish and Swedish.
