Stamps issued until 1923Edit

The following classic and post-classic (1861-1923) Greek stamps are in the public domain, use license tag {{PD-old}}:

  1. Large Hermes heads (1861/1876), by André Désiré Barre (1818-1878).
  2. Small Hermes heads (1886/1888), by Henri Hendrickx (1817-1894, designer) & Albert Doms, Atelier de Timbre (engraver).
  3. 1896 Olympics, by Louis-Eugène Mouchon, (1843-1914).
  4. 1913 definitives (lithographic printing), by G. Iakovides (1853-1932) & I. Svoronos (1863-1922).
  5. Campaign 1912 (1913), by Panagiotis Kavvadias (1849-1928)
  6. Text overprints on the stamps listed above.

Stamps issued by the Greek authorities by applying text overprints on stamps of the Ottoman Empire (mostly during the Balkan wars 1912-1913 and also between 1919-1921) are also public domain, tag with {{PD-Ottoman}}.

For the following stamp issues of the same period (1861-1923), the individual artists are unknown. They are acceptable as pseudonymous works (e.g., published only under a corporate or organization's name) in the public domain, having been published over 70 years ago, with a license tag {{Anonymous-EU}}:

  1. 1901 definitives (flying Mercury/Hermes), engraving by the Johnstonian Engraving Co., 1899.
  2. 1902 A.M. definitives, engraving by the Johnstonian Engraving Co., 1899.
  3. 1906 Olympics, by Perkins, Bacon & Co Ltd, UK.
  4. 1911 definitives (recess printing), by G. Iakovides (1853-1932) & I. Svoronos (1863-1922), engraved by Thomas McDonald Ltd.
  5. Souda (1913), by Bradbury, Wilkinson & Co Ltd, UK.
  6. Venizelist definitives (1917), by Perkins, Bacon & Co Ltd, UK.
  7. Text overprints on the stamps listed above.

Stamps issued between 1924 and 1970Edit

The status of these stamps is not clear, as the Post Office was a branch of the Civil Service. The stamps were issued by the central government and distributed through the government Treasury as receipts for payments of postage fees (therefore government administrative documents), so they may fall under the exemptions of the copyright law and be tagged with {{PD-GreekGov}}. Until the issue is settled, it is recommended that stamps of this period are uploaded on Commons only if a hypothetical copyright on them has expired under the 70 years pma rule.

Stamps issued since 1970Edit

The Hellenic Post (greek: ΕΛΤΑ) was founded in 1970 as a Legal Entity of Private Law (greek: Ν.Π.Ι.Δ.) and was converted to a Company Hellenic Post S.A. in 1996. [1] Therefore post-1970 stamps are not Government works and fall under the 70 years pma rule.
