Postage Stamp - History of Russian Aircraft - Kalinin K-5 (1929) - Soviet Union 1978 - Michel Soviet Union 4752 - my hobby.

Greetings friends!

Today, I would like to present another postage stamp from Series History of Russian Aircraft, issued in 1978 in the USSR.

This postage stamp features one of the first Kalinin K-5 (1929) passenger aircraft.

This modest-looking aircraft could carry 8 passengers.

In the description of the characteristics of this aircraft, it is said that the eight passenger seats were comfortable, but I find it difficult to imagine this in this flimsy-looking fuselage.

When I think about air pockets and updrafts, I completely forget about any comfort, lol.

This postage stamp received a face value of 6 kopecks of the USSR.

In 1978, I was only 3 years old and I cannot know, or I cannot remember what exactly, it was possible to buy for 6 kopecks, except for this postage stamp.

But I can say with certainty that you could have taken a trolleybus twice, or made a phone call three times from a telephone booth, which cost 2 kopecks each.

Definitely, you could put your thoughts, joys and chews on a piece of paper and send a letter to your relatives at a distance that was covered by the face value of this postage stamp.

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.

To be continued.
