Greetings friends!

As you can see, posts about postage stamps began to appear under the general title Travel the World of Postage Stamps.

Yesterday, when I was working on the cover, I was happy with the result, only until the moment I published my post.

I saw that the cover was too dim and today I hope that by adding some lighting the cover will be brighter.

Any journey, regardless of whether it is a journey on foot, on a boat, on any other transport, or this journey in the world of postage stamps, have common points.

All of them are aimed at obtaining new knowledge, emotions, impressions, but they all require preparation, finance and the desire not to stop at the achieved result.

Before, I sometimes looked sadly at my collection of postage stamps.

The stockbooks were covered with dust, but I did not want to sell my stamps, even at hours when there was no bread in my house.

Sometimes, I blamed myself for it.

Today, I understand that this was the right decision, which, now, thanks to the community of the #Hive and #LeoFinance, can give me a broader horizons in the field of philately.

I do not know which coin will give me the opportunity to increase my collection in the future, but I see that there are great chances for this.

Perhaps I will start buying stamps after the #LEO - #WLEO air drop.

But, today, this is not easy to do.

Yesterday, I went to where postage stamp collectors usually gather on Sundays.

I wanted to know the prices for the postage stamps that interest me.

As it turned out, until the end of the quarantine, philatelists will not gather.

Sadly, I hope my journey is just beginning.

Today, I would like to present another postage stamp from Series History of Russian Aircraft, issued in the USSR with a circulation of 4,000, 000 copies, in 1978, with a face value of 20 kopecks of the USSR, which depicts fighter I-16 fighter plane (1934).

Notice how the price of this postage stamp has increased compared to other postage stamps in the same series.

This is the last brand in the series History of Russian Aircraft 1978

Now, I suggest taking a look at the 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.

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.
