Swiss Airmail Stamp

[Swiss Airmail Stamp]

Swiss Airmail Stamp

This stamp was issued by Switzerland to pay for the rather new service of air mail. Many nations embraced the new technology with great vigor, issuing many highly artistic stamp designs. This stamp depicts the allegorical figure "Flight". The airmail stamps of other European nations are also interesting, including those of Poland. Later, these same countries issued many stamps specifically for the lighter-than-air ship flights (Zeppelins).
