Hello everyone, I am back with another thread, and this time I am back with an idea for a collection.
So far, I have 3 topics/areas that I collect, and was wondering, if it would be possible to build a collection that describes the general history of everything, in chronological order.
To figure out if this is possible, I wanted to ask: Do you have any stamps that depict any of the following things? and if so, please do share.
- The Big Bang - Galaxy Formation - The Milky Way - Planet Formation - Star Formation - The Planets - The Sun - Earth - The Primordial Soup - Simple Prehistoric Bacteria - Prehistoric Plants - Dinosaurs - Cave Men (homo sapien, homo erectus, etc) - Fire - Agriculture - etc...
The planets should be easy enough, certainly dinosaurs, and the earth. I know that stamps have been issued which depict galaxies, though I don't know about galaxy formation.
One particular set I have always admired is the set issued by Mexico on the 1940'sdepictin astronomical objects including galaxies. If I recall, there are commems and air mails. Considering the printing options available at the time, I find them quite remarkable.
