Postage Due Stamp - Insects 1962 - Centaurus Giant Beetle (Augosoma centaurus), Longhorn Beetle - Central African Republic 1962 - Michel CF P3-P4 - my hobby.

Greetings friends!

Today, I propose to continue to collect the series of postage stamps issued in the Central African Republic in 1962.

This series was named Insects 1962 and tells us about insects, in particular about beetles, which are common on the African continent.

Usually, I will talk about one Postage Due Stamp, but today, we will talk about two Postage Due Stamp that are put together.

One of the methods of printing postage stamps is printing two images on one sheet of strict accountability with perforation applied to it.

It is precisely this technology that we can see by looking at this postage stamp.

Apparently, the cost of postage was very different in price and you could pay. either 2 francs, or 1 franc for the correspondence received.

If you had to share such a linkage of postage stamps, try to do it very carefully, because the safety of the teeth of a postage stamp greatly affects its value, like the cost of a collector's item.

Below, you will see a more detailed description of each Postage Due Stamp.

According to the serial number in the Michel catalog, you should start with a Postage Due Stamp that shows the beetle Centaurus Giant Beetle (Augosoma centaurus).

It is a large beetle that is a species of Rhino beetle.

At the auction I trust, I did not see this Postage Due Stamp on sale and I assume that its price can vary from 0.1 to 0.25 USD.

The next Postage Due Stamp shows beetle Longhorn Beetle, which got its name from its very long antennae. His mustache can be many times as long as his body. And if, from around the corner, a mustache appears, you will need to be patient to wait for their owner to appear from around the corner.

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.

I edited a photo in the program PhotoDirector, which I also installed on my smartphone.

For my publications, I do not use stock photographs, it is fundamentally important for me to use photographs that I have made with my own hands for publication and I can name them - authorial work.

Hugs dear friend. Successes in your work at Hive. Your evaluation is an encouragement for our publications. Thank you.

@yggdrasil.laguna thanks for the flag. This suggests that you do not understand that postage stamps are, in many ways, what allowed our world to become, what it has become. The development of any technology is impossible without communications, which, at one time, were postage stamps. Moreover, postage stamps themselves are the technology of replenishing the budget of the countries that issue these stamps and the technology of the method of payment for postage. Technology is not only resistors and transistors, lol. Okay, I won't argue with you. It's just that sometimes you have to read paper books lol.
