Virtual Exhibit Stalin on Stamps Posted


A thematic exhibit with a lot of historical research to back it up, "Stalin" shows how the dictator's portrayal on the stamps, covers, FDCs, postcards and patriotic covers of the Soviet Union and other countries changed according to ideology and the politics of the moment. Almost all of the Stalin-related stamps issued around the world are shown here.

Highlights: Frame 1: Stalin on an early, postally-used Soviet postcard (1926); Registered covers addressed to Stalin (1936-1937). Frame 2: Stalin stamps on a rare Albania cover (1950). Frame 4: Study of the Stalinallee definitive (GDR, 1953-1961). Frame 5: Anti-Stalin Catholic cinderella (1940); German postcard with Stalin caricature issued for occupied territories. Frame 6: Registered postcard with the Victory triumvirate from the Tel Aviv exhibit (1945); Collection of Stalin-related US cachets.
