The World's Last Money Letter?
I used to buy large quantities of post 1991 commercial mail from former Soviet republics. I still have thousands of covers sitting in my office, and occasionally I take a look at them. This cover amused me: a Money Letter for 900 roubles sent on 15 10 94 from Tver to Moscow with a single Soviet period wax seal of Tver Pochtamt on the back (the Avis de Reception has been removed).
One day - perhaps it has already happened - the world's last wax-sealed money letter will be sent. Maybe this is it, though I doubt it. Can anyone find a Russian one from the 21st century, I wonder?

You've just made me curious. I'll search my archive, even if I guess I have not so many modern Russian mail.ReplyDelete
