Postage stamps - Bearded vulture (Gypaetus barbatus) - series 100th anniversary of the Moscow Zoo - USSR 1964 - Michel 2920 - my hobby.

Greetings friends!

Postage stamps are an integral part of the global financial system and perform important functions.

You cannot stick a paper bill on an envelope and send a letter.

You need to purchase a postage stamp.

I'm talking about government postal services.

A postage stamp can be compared to a letter of guarantee.

When it is glued to the envelope, the postal service knows that the payment for this postal item has arrived in the treasury and, in the future, the post office will receive government funding in an amount equal to the face value of this postage stamp.

To explain this in simple terms, this is an advance payment for a service - a postal item.

So, I proposed to collect a series of postage stamps.

Yesterday, we had to report to a complete series of seven postage stamps, one postage stamp.

And, today, we can breathe a sigh of relief and joy, because, in our collection, now, there is a complete series.

The next and last stamp in this series is the stamp, which depicts a winged predator - Bearded vulture (Panthera tigris).

This mark is worth 16 kopecks, which is the value of a loaf of gray bread at the time.

If you don't buy bread, you could afford a lot of little things with this money.

A trip in a fixed-route taxi cost 15 kopecks.
