Greece to Sweden
October 29, 1952

Today is the Golden Anniversary for this airmail cover.
It has an interesting configuration.
It was postmarked Athens and cancelled upside down with a machine roller cancel.

The cover is franked with 1700d deep blue green airmail of 1952 (Scott C68).
The stamp was from a series commemorating the Greek army's struggle against communism.
