Postage Stamp - Aid to Sevilla - Seville Flood Relief - Spanish Sahara 1963 - Michel Spanish Sahara 247 - my hobby.

Greetings friends!

Another postage stamp, issued in 1963 by the Spanish crown for walking on the territory of the Spanish Sahara colony, is a call for help in combating the consequences of the floods that occurred in Seville.

The series was named Aid to Sevilla, and the postage stamp itself was named Seville Flood Relief.

The word of God says that you need to love, even your enemies.

Apparently, the king of Spain hoped for this when he decided to distribute these postage stamps on the territory of his colony.

For Western Sahara, Spain has been like a flood, fire, epidemic and earthquake all rolled into one for many years.

I don’t know what the Sahara people were thinking when they purchased this postage stamp.

Only two years later, the colonies of Spain gained independence.

  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.
