Sunday Stamps II - 111

Hello from the American Midwest!  Running a little late today.

Our theme this week for Sunday Stamps is outer space.  I have two stamps that I have shared before (but they fit the theme so perfectly!), one from the USSR and and one from Russia.


One of my favorites, showing two cosmonauts in a scary-small capsule.  This stamp is from the early 1980's I believe.

A more recent stamp:



Of Valentina Tereshkova, first woman to have flown in space (in June 1963). This stamp is for the 50th anniversary of that flight.  Her call sign was Chaika  or "seagull" therefore the bird appears on this stamp.

Please visit SeeitonaPostcard and see who else is playing.

The cosmonauts in the capsule stamp is fantastic.

I love these. Also it is nice to see women in the space!

Two fine stamps. I'm glad the seagull is included.

I recently had a ride in a very small compact car and felt a bit claustrophobic(even with all; the windows!) and cannot imagine sitting in such a compact space capsule!.
