New issues: Estonia - "Definitive Stamp"

The first self-adhesive stamps of Eesti Post, issued in 2004, were definitives. The earlier definitives featuring leopards of the national coat of arms were replaced by a new series of County Coats-of-Arms. The stamps of the series in the domestic letter rate were issued in the alphabetic order over the period 2004-08. Besides, flower design definitives were issued to cover the need for smaller demoninations.
All the definitives of a higher face value than the domestic letter rate issued in 2005-07
