Stamp Investment Tip: Greece 1933 Graf Zeppelin Issue (Scott #C5-7)

In 1933, Greece issued a set of stamps commemorating the Italy Flight of the airship "Graf Zeppelin" (Scott #C5-7), and picturing a Zeppelin flying over the Acropolis. 25,000 sets were issued, and the stamps were intended to prepay postage on covers from Greece carried on that flight. Scott prices the unused set at $ 118.00 ($325.00 for NH).

I recommend purchase of the set- NH, LH, or on covers carried on the flight.

Zeppelin stamp and cover collecting is extremely popular worldwide, and this set is sought by collectors of both Greece and Zepps. Many countries issued stamps for use on the various Zeppelin flights, and those interested in learning more about the Zeppelin issues and their usages should consider purchasing a Michel Zeppelin Specialized Catalog or a Sieger Zeppelin Post Catalog.
