Postage Stamp - History of Russian Aircraft - SH-2 Amphibian, 1930 - Soviet Union 1977 - Michel Soviet Union 4626 - my hobby.

Greetings friends!

The desire to solve several problems at the same time has probably been the strongest engine of progress.
When smartphones with many functions and computers had not yet been invented, audio centers appeared on the market where you could listen to vinyl records, listen to the radio and watch a small TV, then TVs with a built-in VCR and so on appeared.

But, to the unification of functions, people were striving in all spheres of life and the desire to conquer several elements at the same time led to the creation of flying boats.

Today, I want to present a postage stamp from Series History of Russian Aircraft, which depicts a flying amphibian SH-2.

There is one detail on this postage stamp, which is false and leads to the idea of ​​plagiarism.

The date indicated is 1930, but, in fact, this plane took off in 1934.

Below, you can see a link to the postage stamp, which we talked about earlier, which depicts an amphibian, the brainchild of aircraft designer Sikorsky. This plane took off in 1928.

I can only see small differences.

One engine instead of two and a slight change in shape.

Now, let's take a look at a postage stamp.

Shavrov against Sikorsky, who is the author and who is the plagiarist, let history judge this, but, on the good, there should be references to the authorship of ideas and principles.

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.
