Here is a small group of vintage canceled CCCP stamps depicting several different space craft. From left to right: Sputnik 1, Luna 3 — possibly — and Vostok, and maybe a Venera probe.

  1. Sam,

    Oh yay! I’m glad you decided to post these!

    I like these ones in particular, maybe it’s the matching color schemes or that two of them act as a puzzle. Very nice.

  2. ratchetcat,

    The stamps that work together to form a larger image are my favorites, too. Most stamp sets simply carry the same layout across the individual stamps — it’s rather rare to encounter a design which spans multiple stamps.
