At the top. Money Transfer Form used at Tomsk 8 10 20, single franking with a forgery of the k 20 k overprint used as a Postmaster Provisional and revalued to 20 roubles (2% of the sum transferred)
At the bottom. Parcel Card used at Nizhne-Chulimskoe Tomsk 23 9 20, charged at 78 roubles. On the reverse, three Imperial Arms kopeck stamps revalued from 18 kopecks to 18 roubles; on the front, 3 invalidated Romanov 20 / 14 kop stamps pressed into use as Postmaster Provisionals and revalued to 3 x 20 roubles, thus exactly completing the 78 rouble charge.
