Rarities of Soviet Union Postal History ?

I once made a collection of One Kopeck frankings of Imperial Russia from the 1860s through to 1917, when the lowest Tariff was increased to 2 kopecks. At the same time, I discovered that the 1 kopeck Tariff was re-introduced in the early Soviet period. But I never found more than a few items to illustrate it. You would have to search through many Dealers' Boxes to find items like those shown below:
