Albania, 1994

The light blue definitive card manufactured and supplied by Urmet is well known among collectors and usually considered the first issue of Albania. But less known indeed is that another card was used previously, some months before the official issue, just for a short period: sold to the public at the face value of US$ 16,00, it was one of the cards often used by Urmet to test their phones, the sample card with the picture of the blue Urmet phone on back.
