Background: Airmail stamps. One of the Romanian stamps issued on 12/08/1994 (see at Romania - 50th Anniversary of ICAO) was surcharged (due to inflation) by an airship in red carmine with four different values. This set has Fr watermarks.

It is interesting to note that the overprint in carmine obliterating the prior value of 635 Leu has the form of a Zeppelin airship, in reference to the 100th anniversary of the maiden flight of the first Zeppelin airship LZ.1 on 2 July 1900 at Friedrichshafen.
