Postage Stamp - Cadet Sailing Fleet of the USSR - Three-masted Barquentine "Vega" - Soviet Union 1981 - Michel Soviet Union 5113 - my hobby.

Greetings friends!

The next postage stamp from Series Cadet Sailing Fleet of the USSR, issued in the USSR in 1981, with a face value of 6 kopecks, depicts Three-masted Barquentine "Vega".

Strangely, such a ship is mentioned among the ships that belonged to the Soviet Union, but there is completely no information about this ship.

You can find information about the whaling ship - Barrentina Vega, but it did not belong to the USSR.

It was a hybrid of a sailboat and a steamer.

The Barkentines appeared in the period, or rather, they came very close, to the period when people began to turn their eyes to steamers.

And, the barkentines, have lost their relevance.

Sometimes it may seem that the postage stamps have lost their relevance and, they are worthless.

But, this is a misconception. History moves in a circle.

Today, humanity is looking towards wind energy again, and sails are not the worst option lol.

One day, we will wake up and see the true value of postage stamps, there will be no gradual price increases, there will be a cosmic leap.

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.
