Postage stamps - Polar bear (Ursus maritimus) - series 100th anniversary of the Moscow Zoo - USSR 1964 - Michel 2916 - my hobby.

Greetings friends!

Today, I want to continue my story about my collection of postage stamps and build this series of posts as a very enjoyable process for philatelists, a gradual collection.

I began my story with a series of stamps issued in 1964 and dedicated to the 100th anniversary of the Moscow Zoo.

As a child, for me, and I think for other children who were fond of collecting postage stamps, the most interesting topics were animals, birds, plants, steam locomotives, cars and ships.

But, my collection is more extensive, and I have something to tell.

I had no doubt that I would read the comments that postage stamps have depreciated, but like cryptocurrency, the cost of stamps depends on many factors.

Today, the world is experiencing difficulties and against this background, indeed, postage stamps are losing their value, but this is a good time to show your greed, and, if you have money, to secure your future.

I think you understand what I mean.

So, back to this series of stamps.

I describe the brands in the order in which they are numbered in Catalog Michel .

The third stamp in this series is Beliy Medved, 4 kopecks denomination

Please note that the two previous stamps, which you can see below, or, read my previous posts, have a circulation of 5,000,000.

This stamp, with a circulation of 400,000, means that the opportunity to collect serif from seven postage has been significantly reduced.

One million owners of these stamps will not be able to collect a complete series and, they, will only have two postage stamps, an elephant and a panda.

Now, I will try to remember what could be purchased at that time for 4 kopecks.

Travel by trolleybus - 3 kopecks.
A glass of soda without gas - 1 kopeck.
A glass of soda with syrup - 3 kopecks.
Phone call in the machine 2 kopecks.
Pokal half a liter of kvass - 3 kopecks.
Box of matches - 1 kopeck.

As you can see, these 4 kopecks have greatly expanded the possible range of your actions.

I suggest taking a look at this beautiful postage stamp.

For my publications, I do not use stock photographs, it is fundamentally important for me to use photographs that I have made with my own hands for publication and I can name them - authorial work.
