Alatyr

Alatyr issued two stamps in 1867, the second a 2k black on yellowish-grey paper. This block of four is rare.

As the Zemstvos became established and the Czar’s dominance receded, the Russian Rural Post became an integral part of the Russian Mail system. If you would like to see more of this collection, please visit the State Department’s website:
