You can own U.S. #C18, the desirable 1933 airmail known affectionately as the "Baby Zepp" due to its lower face value than the previous three Zeppelin stamps. Rich in history, #C18 is scarce stamp with a direct connection to the golden age of dirigibles and grand world expositions.
One of the most attractive airmail stamps ever issued, #C18 sold poorly in 1933. Eventually 90% of the stamps were destroyed – leaving a mere 324,000 for modern collectors. But it's not too late for you to add it to your collection. Take advantage of this rare opportunity and own the sought-after #C18 today.
