#MCV019 – 1980s First Day Covers, Collection of 100

 

Get 100 First Day Covers Issued During the 1980s

The 1980s marked the last ten years of the Cold War, with increased tensions as President Reagan changed US policy from détente to a much more forceful approach.  The struggle between Reagan and Soviet leader Mikhail Gorbachev is legendary.  Historians now say that the 1986 Chernobyl Nuclear Disaster combined with Reagan’s no-nonsense approach were some of the strongest factors that led to the fall of the Soviet Union.  You might also remember the crisis in Ethiopia as the country suffered one of the greatest famines in history.  A group of musicians got together in 1985 to perform the Live Aid concert which raised money for hunger relief in Ethiopia.  Queen, Elton John, Madonna, Sting, the Beach Boys, Mick Jagger, and David Bowie were just a few of the performers who played at Live Aid.  Perhaps one of the most significant events of the 1980s was the invention of the Internet.

   

Some of the stamps I saw in my set of 100 covers honored the 1980 Winter Olympics, paid tribute to the service of American veterans,  and recalled some of the United States’ most well-known first ladies (like Abigail Adams and Eleanor Roosevelt).  There was even a cover issued for the World Stamp Expo of 1989.  Order your set today.
