Special printing by the printer of the complete set from the original dies in the issued colours on a large presentation sheet for the 1900 Paris exhibition, 40x53cm, where it was exhibited at the printer’s booth, entitled “Grèce / Timbres Commemoratifs des Jeux Olympiques”, faults to the periphery of the sheet, very few printed and thought to be the unique surviving sheet, a fantastic showpiece for this popular issue
