Queen Nefertiti - Berlin

I recently received this stamp from Germany (not this exact one - mine is VF used). It depicts the famous bust of Queen Nefertiti and was issued in 1989 in Berlin (SG B785).
According to Wikipedia, the Deutsche Bundespost Berlin - German Federal Mail of Berlin - was the governmental agency to provide mail and telecommunication services for West Berlin. It was in operation from 1949 until the reunification of Germany in 1990.
