Soviet Stamps

When I was a kid a Russian friend I had gave me these set of Soviet stamps, issued at the end of the Space Race years. I must say they have a glossy appearance that was not captured by the scanner (and I did not bothered trying to troubleshoot that), but I suppose they still look quite remarkable.

  1. I have some of those. They’re beautiful. My favourite one is the last on your third photograph – the USSR and USA collaboration in space. Year 1975 – not long after that stupid and frightening Cold War.
