[ There is another large series of 1935 designed by Georg Jung, but I don't show it because it isn't present in the catalog I use to do these blog...I found out also that there are some difference between the information's provided by some of the other Main catalogs about this Air Mail series , in what concerns to the Printing Method.. some say it is a [recess] series, others a [Photo] series.. If You want to see this series please follow the link to WorldStamps...]
