Here's a lovely set dating from
1993 that celebrates 300 years of the Russian navy by showing six famous Russian
ship designers and images of some of their ship designs.
Oh yes - the designer in the top
left hand corner? That is none other than Peter the Great, who among his
many other talents not only founded the Russian navy but also designed ships -
indeed, he even built his own small boat by hand entirely by himself, too!
Truly a remarkable man in many ways.
These stamps are valued by Scott
as a set of six for $3 mint and $2.25 used. It seems to me that having
these lovely first day cancels on them should add to their used value, and
because they have never been postally used, they remain with OG and are
NH. Furthermore, Scott values them on the basis of six from the total
sheet of 18 - surely the complete sheet with printed selvedge on all sides is
worth considerably more again?
In any case, the base Scott price
before adding any adjustments for these stamps is $6.75. My price is less
than one third of this.
Asking price - $3.00
