Postage Stamp - Cadet Sailing Fleet of the USSR - Three-masted Barque "Tovarishch" - Soviet Union 1981 - Michel Soviet Union 5115 - my hobby.

Greetings friends!

Attention to small details is an important quality that a philatelist should develop in himself.

After all, when purchasing a postage stamp, you should know a lot about it and will be able to see obvious and hidden defects, if they exist, this significantly affects the price of a postage stamp.

I do not understand how one can acquire postage stamps from private collections over the Internet. This is the product that you need to see with your own eyes. Trusting in someone else's idea of ​​quality is like trusting a hungry wolf lol.

Trust, who do we trust?

Druzby, comrades, "Tovarishch"?

Sometimes, you have to be careful.

Imagine a situation, you bought a ticket for a sailing ship named "Tovarishch".

You have decided to go to India.

You settled in the cabin and sail calmly.

One day, you see the ground in front of you.

Everyone is happy, and they say that Jamaica is close.

What is Jamaica?

We must see India!

You go to the captain of the ship and make a claim.

You show the captain your ship ticket, and he laughs merrily.

You don't understand what's going on.

You ask the captain again: Is this ship "Tovarishch"?

He answers: Of course?

At such a moment, it becomes incomprehensible who has gone mad.

Then, when the captain's laughter stopped, he explained that I boarded a three-masted ship "Tovarishch", and, I had to board a Three-masted Barque "Tovarishch"!

Small detail but big problems lol.

So, earlier, I talked about the postage stamp which depicts Four-masted Barque "Tovarishch", now I suggest taking a look at Three-masted Barque "Tovarishch". Don't get confused!

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.
