Stalin Stamps
Postage stamp quality in Russia

When Stalin completed 25 years of his rule over Russia, Stalin instructed the Postmaster General to issue a special postage stamp, with his picture on it - stressing that it had to be of international quality.

Shortly after the stamps were released, Stalin heard complaints that the stamp was not sticking properly, and he became furious. He called the chief of the Secret Service and ordered him to investigate the matter. The chief checked the matter out at several post offices, and then reported on the problem to Stalin.

He said, “Sir, the stamp is really of international quality. The problem is, our citizens are spitting on the wrong side!”
