1985 Stamps Mark the Dawn of a New Soviet Age! The early 1980s were characterized by a frequent changing of the guard in the Soviet Union.  With the passing of three leaders in three years, it was time for a more youthful person to run the country.  In 1985 Mikhail S. Gorbachev became the first member of a new generation to head the Soviet Union.  Gorbachev enacted several reforms in an attempt to further the personal freedom of the citizens, and lessen tensions between the Soviet Union and the United States. This complete mint set will serve as a beautiful and dramatic reminder of this pivotal time in world history.  It's full of the stamp topics that were important to the Soviet people.  You’ll find stamps that recognize history, technology, the arts and even wildlife.  One of the most interesting celebrates the accomplishments of cosmonauts Leonid Kizim, Vladimir Solovyov, and Oleg Atkov.  In October 1984, these three remarkable men completed a 237-day mission aboard the Salyut 7.  During the mission they completed a record 22 hour and 55 minute space walk!  Get your set today.
