Postage Stamp - 50th Anniversary of Airline CUBANA 1929 -1979 - Airplane (Douglas DC-3 1935) - Cuba 1979 - Michel Cuba 2432 - my hobby.

Greetings friends!

Today, we will continue our quest, journey and historical research, which is possible thanks to the postage stamps of different countries and different years of issue.

I began my story about a series of 50th Anniversary of Airline CUBANA 1929 -1979 stamps issued in 1979 on the island of Cuba.

The images on postage stamps are very colorful, but I lack the informational content of these postage stamps.

It is strange that I did not find such a study on the Internet, apparently, all philatelists have deep knowledge in the field of aviation, lol.

So let's continue.

Another postage stamp, face value 3 ¢ - Cuban centavo, depicts an airplane, which is quite easily recognizable.

Such airplanes could be seen in historical films of the Second World War.

They performed transport and passenger transportation.

This aircraft is called Douglas DC-3, it was released in 1935 and, according to some reports, some aircraft continue to operate today.

The production of these aircraft was massive, more than 16,000 pieces.

It is interesting that in different countries, these planes had different names.

Even in the USSR, this plane was in demand and was called the Li-2, and in Japan, neighboring to the USSR, it was called Showa L2D.

These aircraft were also used for military purposes.

The flight duration up to 17 hours made this aircraft irreplaceable.

The country that gave this plane to the world is the USA.

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.

Если учеть время, когда курсировали эти самолёты, то, с большой вероятностью, эти фотоснимки, это плагиат чистой воды, вырванный из старых фотоснимков, и, разукрасив их, наложили флаг Кубы. Но, точно, такие же машины, принадлежали в своё время компании Кубана, это, исторически, верно.
