Greece is a country on the Balkan peninsula, whose first postal service was established in 1826 at the time of its independence from the Ottoman empire. The first stamps were the famous Hermes heads, which were issued in 1861. Greece's postal history is replete with beautiful topicals commemorating the Olympics and the sports played during the games. Our stock has a comprehensive supply of the Hermes heads issues and the Olympic sets dating back to the first Olympic issue of 1896. We also have a significant stock of the many issues relating to the ancient archeology of Greece. Our stock also includes BOB, locals, occupations and the islands of Crete, Cyprus, Corfu and the Ionian Islands.
