Postage Stamp - 50th Anniversary of Airline CUBANA 1929 -1979 - Airplane (Yak-40 Codling 1967 - 1981) - Cuba 1979 - Michel Cuba 2434 - my hobby.

Greetings friends!

Occasionally, researching postage stamps offers a respite, lol.

Today, I can easily identify the name of the aircraft, which is depicted on a postage stamp issued in 1979 on the island of Cuba.

As a child, I flew this plane several times with my mother on vacation and I had a model of this plane.

When I look at it, I get an association and a memory from the distant past, first of all, this is the persistent smell of dried, salted fish.

Many passengers tried to avoid the consequences of motion sickness in the plane and ate salted fish, which filled the entire cabin with its smell.

That smell alone made me feel nauseous, lol.

In those days, there were no pills for motion sickness and had to fight the vestibular apparatus using folk methods.

This is the first Soviet jet aircraft with three turbines for passenger transportation.

The countries of NATO called him Small Cod, but to me he looks like a French Bulldog, because of the short body.

In the Soviet Union, everyone knew this aircraft as the Yak - 40 and a very reliable air horse.

As it turned out, he was also popular across the Atlantic Ocean.

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.
