150 Years Since the First Greek Stamp

On the 1st of October, it will be 150 years since the first Greek stamp, known as “The Big Head of Hermes”, which was established by the French artist Albert Barre and printed by Ernest Meyer in 1861 in Paris.
Due to its celebration, Hellenic Posts issued a commemorative series of 7 stamps, accompanied by a fegie on the long head of Hermes of 1861.
Both the stamps and the fegies are entirely painted by a Greek engraver, John Gourzis, professor at the School of Fine Arts.
