Travel the World of Postage Stamps - Prehistoric Animals - Cuban Giant Owl (Ornimegalonyz oteroi) - Cuba 1982 - Michel Cuba 2691 - my hobby



Greetings friends!

Usually, I try to have stamps in perfect condition in my collection, but sometimes this is not the case.

One day, at a flea market, I bought a small stockbook with postage stamps, some of them in poor condition, like some stamps from the Prehistoric Animals series released in Cuba in 1982.

I didn’t raise my hand to throw them away and I don’t regret it. Later, I will replace them with stamps in perfect condition, but even damaged postage stamps from this series today cost some money, because this series was issued in a scanty circulation of 450,000 copies.

On a 1 Cuban centavo postage stamp, we see the Cuban Giant Owl (Ornimegalonyz oteroi) I do not know whether an owl is on the island of Cuba, a symbol of wisdom, but on the Eurasian continent it is.

Sometimes, I really want to get wisdom, especially when thinking about what to do with your coins, lol.

This postage stamp is in good condition, what I said, mentioning the quality of the postage stamp, you will see in future publications.

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.
