Postage Stamp - Cadet Sailing Fleet of the USSR - Three-masted Schooner "Kodor" - Soviet Union 1981 - Michel Soviet Union 5114 - my hobby.

Greetings friends!

I wonder how people felt when, for the first time, got on a sailing ship and dreamed of becoming sailors?

They probably felt like babies who can't walk.

That's exactly how I felt when, for the first time, I got on the blockchain with Steem.

Only, almost two years later, I ventured to go to the stock exchange of the Steem-engine and make my first purchase, lol.

It was difficult for the dinosaur to wedge himself into the rhythm of the chain of blocks, but, gradually, understanding of the processes came.

All this, compounded by the lack of knowledge of the English language, was difficult.

in maritime business there are many specific terms that are incomprehensible to a common man in the street.

Postage stamps from series Cadet Sailing Fleet of the USSR, issued in the USSR in 1981, reminded me of the difficulties I had to face, today, I remember all this with a smile.

Another postage stamp depicts Three-masted Schooner "Kodor".

This small, auxiliary vessel acted as a courier, if, so to speak, between the fishing vessels and the port.

As a result, it became a training vessel for cadets.

This schooner was built in Finland.

If you can say that a Mercedes bought in Russia is a Russian car, then it would be appropriate to say that a ship built in Finland and bought there is a ship of the USSR, only like my potato, which I bought in store and eat it myself.

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.
