With the advent of the internet and IMS and chat, stamp collection may no longer be a common hobby. Nevertheless, postal stamps are a good way to celebrate famous people, events and popular vintage cars. This is why 69 PIT STOP commissioned a limited edition of an exclusive collectors’ stamp that features the “Pagoda” SL from the German Postal Service.
The Mercedes W 113 SL model series made its appearance in 1963. It quickly became known as the “pagoda” thanks to the design of its removable hard top and this moniker endured the test of time. After more than 50 years, the Mercedes W 113 SL continues to be one of the most popular vintage cars on the automotive scene. It has a huge global fanbase that is spread across different parts of the world, and models which are in good running condition can fetch prices that about twenty times the original price of the model when it was new.
The self-adhesive stamp depicts a thrilling action shot of a signal-red “Pagoda” 280 SL. When it comes to the postage value, its value is 70 cents for a standard letter.
The collection will be a limited edition collection and in order to mark the model’s birth year, 1963, precisely 1,963 collectors folded cards each of which will feature two “Pagoda” postage stamps between the covers will be issued.
These rare collectors postage stamps are available exclusively online at www.69pitstop.com for a nominal price of 10 euro including shipping and will truly be a great addition to any stamp lover’s collection, especially if he also happens to be an automotive enthusiast.
