Postage Stamp - 50th Anniversary of Airline CUBANA 1929 -1979 - Airplane (Sikorsky S-38 1928-1930) - Cuba 1979 - Michel Cuba 2431 - my hobby.

Greetings friends!

I decided to stay on the sunny island of Cuba and continue the story about a series of postage stamps issued in 1979 and dated to 50th Anniversary of Airline CUBANA 1929 -1979.

Usually, when they talk about the hero of the day, they do not hesitate to say a lot of flattering words in his honor, but on these postage stamps I see excessive modesty.

On the postage stamps that show us beautiful airplanes, the name of these airplanes is completely absent, which turns the postage stamp into a kind of postcard.

I decided to fix this and fill these postage stamps with a semantic load and find out which aircraft are depicted on each postage stamp from this series.

After some searching, I think I was able to establish the name of the seaplane, or winged amphibian that we see on the postage stamp.

Apparently, this is the brainchild of the great aircraft manufacturer and the father of the first helicopter - Igor Sikorsky.

This aircraft was produced for a short period from 1928 to 1930.

I am amazed at the flight range of this small aircraft, 1200 kilometers of power reserve, this is a long distance.

It's hard for me to imagine how 10 passengers and two crew members could fit in it, but, all this, really, took off into the air and made flights.

It's funny, apparently, if your surname is Sikorsky, you are doomed to be a genius.

But, it can be a good and bad genius, lol.

I personally know the evil genius, Victor, by the name of Sikorsky.

To him came world fame, as well as to an aircraft manufacturer, but he did not build airplanes, he was the world's most famous counterfeiter.

One day, sitting over a cup of tea, he told me a lot about his life and the world of finance, lol.

But even an evil genius can change.

Now, he is the pastor of the Kiev People of God churches.

So, I suggest taking a look at this 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.
