In 1952 Yugoslavia issued an attractive maritime set, of which the 10 dinars value is alleged to show the post-war motor liner Zagreb. If this is so, the stamp exaggerates the vessel's size and is quite wrong as to her appearance for, according to "Lloyds Register," she is only 3,100 gross tons on dimensions 317.8ft x 45.9ft. x 27.4ft and has her propelling machinery aft! She was built by Poduzece III Maj. at Rijeka.
