GREECE Sc # 2129 GREEK 2004 OLYMPICS LEONIDAS SAMPANIS ERROR in FULL SHEET of 20 - RARE! This digital produced stamp was issued to honour Leonidas Sampanis, bronze medal winner in weightlifting in the 2004 Olympics. After Sampanis testing positive for drugs, the stamp was immediately removed from sale.It was on sale at face value for only 4 days at only 5 post offices throughout Greece. The stamps were issued in A4 sheets, that is in panes of 20 with 2 sheets of 10 separated by a roulette type perforation. Most stamp collectors, dealers and distributors were unaware of the recall, being a weekend when post offices were closed. Single copies are available relatively cheap, as are blocks of 4. We have only one such sheet available at the price noted.
If it doesn't sell, we may be inclined to break it up into 2 panes of 10. We encourage you not to miss this outstanding opportunity of owning a modern error, and one of Greece's sought after philatelic items of all time.
