Graf Zeppelin 50 Stamp

There is a widespread scramble for this stamp since it departed so suddenly from the Philatelic Agency, and particularly so since the number issued has been announced as only 324,000.  Prices are mounting rapidly, and the stamp is being talked of as worth "several times face."  Before the speculation advances too far, it should be remembered that the 65 Zeppelin, a much better stamp, of which there were only 93,500, is retailing about $3.50.
