[ in this post , some of the stamps use a particular kind of printing called [Collopype]...I will leave here some info I get in the Net:
"Many Russian stamps from the 1930s to 50s were printed by collotype, an unusual process which produces an almost microscopic random grain rather than a conventional halftone screen, making it virtually continuous tone. It was more usually applied to fine art reproduction and is now almost extinct. "
I hope this info could be useful ...]
