This set of five stamps was issued in 1965 to celebrate the opening of the Museum of the Revolution in Havana, Cuba.
Prior to 1959 the building was the Presidential Palace for Fulgencio Batista, who fled the country late that year as guerillas commanded by Fidel Castro swept across the country and took control of Havana.
These stamps depict some of the military equipment that was critical to the revolutionaries' success, and was now on display at the museum.
The 1-centavo stamp depicts a 37mm anti-tank gun used by the guerillas of the 26th of July Movement near Santiago.
The 2-centavo stamp features an improvised "tankette" armored vehicle.
The 3-centavo stamp shows a bazooka anti-tank weapon used by the 26th of July Movement.
The 10-centavo stamp features a uniform as worn by the 82 men who landed in Cuba on the yacht Granma in 1952.
The 13-centavo stamp shows the yacht Granma itself along with the compass used to navigate the Gulf of Mexico on the way to Cuba.
All stamp sets are shipped in a protective cardboard display card, and include a free Soviet ruble from the KGB Museum in New York City and two free miscellaneous Cold War stamps, while supplies last.
