Design: Electric lightning-bolts sizzle and flash from the torch held aloft by an outsized statue of a goddess; in the background is a classically-proportioned temple. The roman lettering is of the 'modern' variety, with thick-and-thin strokes (though the stress is wrongly placed in the N), while the Cyrillic lettering is of the sans serif variety.

History: Label scans courtesy of collector Dimitar Malchev of Bulgaria, who notes that this label is one of Bulgaria's oldest.
