Postage Stamp - 50th Anniversary of Airline CUBANA 1929 -1979 - Airplane (Bristol Britannia 1955 - 1960) - Cuba 1979 - Michel Cuba 2433 - my hobby.

Greetings friends!

When people talk about facelessness, it is assumed that we cannot, visually, see something and place an emphasis on something.

On a series of postage stamps issued on the island of Cuba in 1979, we see images of airplanes, but they are unnamed.

In this, namelessness, there is a certain amount of facelessness.

If you don’t see the name of the plane, then, as it were, the history of this postage stamp ends before it begins and interest in this postage stamp disappears.

If you look at the catalogs of postage stamps and find this series, I am sure you will turn the page very quickly, except for the face value of the postage stamp and the inscription that says that the Cuban company is 50 years old, you will see only bright, silent pictures.

Eito needs fixing lol.

So, in the description of the three previous postage stamps, you can already see the names and short descriptions of the aircraft.

If you want to delve into the knowledge of aviation, you just have to enter the name of the plane that flew the Cuban flag into a search engine.

It was the turn of the fourth postage stamp.

This plane is similar to some of the planes that were produced in the Soviet Union and I spent a lot of time walking on the wrong tracks.

Comparing the shape of the fuselage, wings, turbines, and the position of the windows and doors, I found many similarities and many differences.

But then, by a happy coincidence, I found this hero.

This aircraft is - Bristol Britannia, which was produced from 1955 to 1960.

But, its history began two years later in 1947, but during the development many errors were revealed and the development dragged on for 8 years.

It is always painful to look at the work of aircraft manufacturers and other innovators, the result of which, in consequence, can be disastrous.

But, in this case, the engineers and those who financed the project did not give up and, as a result, the iron bird took off.

Now, let's take a look at a 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.
