35 POSTAL HISTORY imageRSFSR 1922 ODESSA Postmaster Provisional Revaluation of Industry & Commerce Issue - Rare Odessa, 1922 (6 May) - International Registered envelope to Hannover, Germany. Franking including a very unusual usage of the 200r brown and 300r green "Commerce & Industry" issue, revalued locally by the postmaster. Very Fine quality for this kind of mail. (Michel 157, 159, 180) The Commerce & Industry 200r & 300r stamps, here 1,000 rubles of FACIAL value, have been revalued 10 times (postal value 10,000 r), combined with 7,500 r (27) adhesives (202,500r) for a total of 212,500 roubles. The first rate foreign registered letter was 400,000r (tariff of 24 April 1922): there are 187,500r missing from the envelope which would just match a pane of 25 of the 7,500r; the most likely explanation would be that the postmaster correctly franked that envelope at 400,000r using TWO panes of 25, but one of them was cut off at one point in time.

Very Fine. Scarce mixed franking with the first stamp of the RSFSR and issues printed by the Provisory Government (Russian Republic, from 2 March until 26 October 1917). This item could also be considered as a TRIPLE MIXED franking, as both the 20k and 10r have possibly been printed just prior the instauration of the Provisory Government in March 1917, i.e during Imperial rule.

Total sending fee in manuscript amount to "120,50" roubles, paid by a combination of reprinted "Arms" 10r (6), 5r (8), 1r (20) and 50k. Upon arrival, the handstamp "NOVGOROD 29 3 20" was applied on the back and a pair of 3 kopek stamps stuck on the front (forwarding fee) by the postal clerk, postmarked Novgorod 8 April 1920. Very Fine. (Michel 63 (2), 75 IIAd, 77 Dyb, 79 AxI, 81 Axb) Soviet mail during 1920 is rather uncommon, as postal services were highly impacted by the raging civil war and ordinary mail was sent free of charge.

A very rare Trophy Stamp usage of the Denikin set in the Tersk region, from a previously unrecorded locality. Most others usages are recorded from actual Ukraine or Crimea.

49 POSTAL HISTORY imageMoney Letter, Ukraine. RSFSR Ukraine 1921 Money Letter Made from a Sheet of Stamps - ex Gorski Ekaterinoslav, Ukraine 1921 (21 December) - Money letter for 5,000 roubles sent to Odessa. Arrival on the back Odessa 30 December 1921. The "envelope" is made of a complete sheet of 50 imperforate 1R stamp (1917 issue) folded in half. Postal item surprisingly in good condition for such delicate item. (Michel 77 Bxb) Ekaterinoslav (actual Dnipropetrovsk) was ceized by the Red Army in 1919 and remained under its control when this money letter was sent. An exceptional item, not only are money letters at that period very elusive but the emergency use of a stamp sheet to create an envelope is the first recorded to us. A rarity, ex collection Gorski.

No arrival postmark as often the case with mail to Tchekoslovakia in the 1920s. Violet "mit Luftpost" (via airmail) framed handstamp (recorded in Ackerman). Very Fine cover, with a few ink spots on the envelope. (Michel 195, 196, 197, 198, 199 Cv. on cover 230 €, 193, 194 Cv. on cover 200 €, 211B) The rate of 345r (tariff from 18 November 1922 until 30 April 1923) is clearly overpaid by 196r. Scarce early Soviet airmail, "Out of Season" and franked with some attractive stamps. The airline operated since May 1922 by the DERULUFT company, with a fleet of Fokker III monoplanes. Route from Moscow to Königsberg VIA Smolensk and Kaunas (Lithuania). The service was assured from April until November.

54 POSTAL HISTORY imageSiberia Kolchak Government 1919 – International Postcard to Sweden Zairkutniy, Irkutsk Region 1919 (16 September) – International 5k postal stationery card from a prisoner of war (POW) to the Swedish Red Cross in Stockholm, upgraded with Arms 20k & 3k, making up the correct 28 kopek rate which was in effect on the territories controlled by the KOLCHAK WHITE ARMY in the May to July 1919 period. The stamps are tied with the PO postmark “ZAIRKUTNYI GORODOK. IRKUT. B 16 6 19” (Ø 27 mm, recorded in Robinson: 411.2b). Very Fine. The card could not go through the western areas controlled by the Bolsheviks, so it was routed eastward to Vladivostok, then by sea to Stockholm. Despite the POW status, Red Cross correspondence was not granted with free frank status (the free-frank POW privilege being abolished with the end of the war anyway). Scarce postal item from the Kolchak regime, showing evidence of the Kolchak postal tariff for foreign mail in the May-July 1919 period.
