At the top of the stamp, which is to the left, the text translates to 3rd Soviet Earth satelite.
Attached to this early Soviet space stamp is a label which, when translated, reads: 15 May 1958: in accordance with the program of the International Geophysical Year, the Soviet Union launched the third artificial earth satellite, weighing 1327 KG, to a height of 1880 kilometers.
