Postage Stamp - History of Russian Aircraft - TB-1 (ANT-4) Monoplane, 1925 - Soviet Union 1977 - Michel Soviet Union 4624 - my hobby.

Greetings friends!

Another postage stamp from Series History of Russian Aircraft, issued in the USSR in 1977, gave me a reason to smile, and even a reason to laugh.

The fact is that this postage stamp very clearly shows the essence of the communist system of the Soviet Union, which shouted that they were the best in the world, the first in everything.

This postage stamp features the first long-range all-metal bomber TB-1 (ANT-4).

In all history textbooks, one could read that this was the first aircraft built in the USSR, which flew between Moscow and New York, thereby showing the greatness and superiority of the Soviet Union over the lagging, capitalist worlds.

It's funny, nowhere was it mentioned that the engines of this aircraft, this is a BMW child, the chassis were made by Swedish Junkers, the weapons and lighting systems were Michelin and Zeisse.

During the flight, it was not without "Russian cunning", in other words, without rigging.

Two aircraft were produced with identical serial numbers of the main components.

And, indeed, it came in handy, because the first plane did not reach New York, crashing in the taiga.

The second plane, as insurance, was able to do this, but not without incident.

If we restore historical justice, this flight is a merit of many countries, whose technologies made it possible to do this.

On the wings of the plane we see the inscription USSR, but it should look like a racing car, on which you can see the emblems of all sponsors of the project, lol.

Even the postage stamp is very pompous. Oset lithography with a notch, as on banknotes, gives this postage stamp additional weight.

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.
