Postage Stamp - History of Russian Aircraft - Tupolev TB-3 (ANT-6) 1930 - Soviet Union 1978 - Michel Soviet Union 4753 - my hobby.

Greetings friends!

Life shows that gradually, they begin to lose a wonderful sense of delight when looking at new items.

In his place comes the understanding that over time, something must change towards perfection and new items are perceived calmly.

Remember the first, black-and-white, silent film, in which the audience could see the railroad tracks and the steam locomotive, which was moving in their direction.

People were divided into two halves. Some, enthusiastically and with their mouths open, looked at the locomotive, others, in horror, scattered in different directions, or hid under an armchair in the cinema.

These are funny, but wonderful examples of the manifestation of human feelings without pretense.

I think that, like this film, there was the appearance in the air of a huge, four-engine bomber Tupolev TB-3 (ANT-6), which you can see on a postage stamp from Series History of Russian Aircraft, issued in the USSR in 1978, with a face value of 10 USSR kopecks.

This plane looked like a huge, yellow dragon, which filled the entire space with the sweep of its engines.

Stupor, fear, surprise, delight, this is a small list of feelings that people experienced when looking at this flying car.

#Bitcoin's rise above $ 40,000 caused less surprise.

Although, no, there were probably those who were happy, who stocked up on #bitcoin and the annoyance of those who sold the coin ahead of time, lol.

I suggest taking a look at the postage stamp, which delighted me as a child, when I was presented with this series of postage stamps.

Important!

  1. Please note that the cost of shipping postage stamps to other countries can be many times more expensive than the postage stamp itself, approximately $ 5.5.

  2. I see that it is not profitable to purchase one postage stamp if, suddenly, you need to replenish your collection. It is always more profitable to purchase the entire series, and, surplus, to change, or sell.

  3. If you decide to buy a postage stamp online, be careful. sometimes sellers use stock images. But this option is unacceptable. You need to see exactly the product that you are buying.

  4. If you are afraid that the postage stamp sellers will want to deceive you, you are doing the right thing, do not doubt it.

  5. To get started with this hobby, buy a good magnifying glass, tweezers with flat and thin edges and a stockbook for postage stamps, they will come in handy.

  6. When buying postage stamps, pay special attention to the back of the postage stamp. The adhesive layer must not be damaged.

  7. There is such an expression - How many people, so many opinions, this also applies to sellers of postage stamps. Each of them believes that his postage stamp is in perfect condition, but only you yourself can find the perfect postage stamp for yourself.

  8. Sometimes, a small, white scrap of paper with a round stamp on it and a number inscribed in the center circle can be a very valuable postage stamp from the days when postage stamps were not printed.

  9. The cost of a postage stamp is determined by supply and demand, but usually in catalogs you can see the estimated cost of a postage stamp in Pounds Sterling.

  10. In terms of quality, postage stamps can be divided into three groups: used postage stamps that were pasted on and removed from the envelope, canceled postage stamps that were canceled at the post office, by order and sent for sale, and clean, uncanceled postage stamps. As you can imagine, these three types of postage stamps, their conditions, greatly affect their value.
