The Stadium

New Entries

This time , I want to start with stamps from my own country.. two series that should be finished long ago..


The reason why these are the last ones to appear is obvious after a quick look at a catalog.. these are the most expensive stamps of the series.. not a lot , but expensive..
stamps from the series (8) 1949 "Avis Dinasty" 
[Des] Pedro Guedes (b 1874/ d ??)
Perf: 11.5
SG(1026,1028) Sc(699,701)

Now we have a complete series that should be classified since 2012, time when i bought it..!

series (8) 1945 "President Carmona" ; this series has a MS available.. a very expensive one..
All the printing work done by Curvoisier..
Perf: 11.5
SG(977,...,984) + MS984a  Sc(650,...,657)+657a

stamps from a large series (17) 1961 "Tourism Publicity"
It is a beautiful series , with lots of great designs and beautifully engraved.. Unfortunately  I cannot get any data from the Designers and Engravers (I have a National catalog, very good, but it lack's this kind of info...) [if any viewer of this post have some catalog with this data , please leave a comment...]
Perf: 12.5 x 13.5
SG(852,856,857,859,860) Sc(693,697,698,700,701)

stamp from the series (3) 1966 "Centenary of Cretan Revolt."
Perf: 12 x 13.5
SG(1008) Sc(852)
[Litho] [Wmk]

These are stamps from one of the most famous definitive series of Greece... in most part of the European countries  this series appeared in the 40's and 50's... the stamps are divided in two groups , because there are 3 different issues of this series : in 1972, 1973 and 1974..
The first series has only 8 stamps , the second 17 and the third 15 .. All the stamps have a multiple Crown Wmk  and the designs are very beautiful.
[Left Group] stamps from the series (8) 1972 "Greek costumes (1st Series)"
SG(1199,1200,1201,1202,1203,1204) Sc(1040,1041,1042,1043,1044,1045)
