Theme : Volkswagen Beetle - 07

Greek postal services dedicated in 2005 a set of stamp to 'old cars'.
Maybe 'old' is not the right word, since a mini cooper is also in the set.
It's dedicated to 'famous' cars, let's say.
Of course the good old 'Volkswagen Beetle' had to be in the set as well.
The particular stamp has the second highest value of the set ( € 2,25).

The stamp shows a 'split window' beetle, the first type of commercialised Volkswagens.
The nice thing is, it's a real picture of a real existing Beetle, and so it looks like in excellent condition.
It has an open roof, so it's already a luxurious model.
In detail, the splitted window can clearly be seen.

This is a very nice set and especially a very niceVolkswagen Beetle stamp.
Thanks, Greece,
ευχαριστίες !
