International Postage Meter Stamp Catalog/Russia

RussiaEdit

  • After the breakup of the Soviet Union in 1991, the constituent countries, including Russia, returned to their former separate and independent status. Soviet inscribed stamps (“CCCP”) continued to be used without alteration for many years. (See UNION OF SOVIET SOCIALIST REPUBLICS for these issues.) Catalogued in this section are stamps inscribed “RUSSIA”, “РОССИИ”, “РОССИЯ”, “ROSSIJA”, “РФ” (RF = Russian Federation) or are without country inscription but have a Russian town mark.
  • The stamps are grouped according to appearance:
A - Provisional issues without country inscription
B - Frank is upright octagon
C - Frank is horizontal octagon
D - Frank is rectangular
E - Frank is irregular shape



GROUP A: Provisional issues without country inscriptionEdit

  • All have octagonal franks with inner rectangular box around the value figures.
