Russian Flax/Hemp Bale Seals

with Post Numbers Only

 

   

Website design, maps and photos by Ged Dodd - Director of The PeaceHavens Project.

 

Russian Flax Bale Seals

with Numbers Only

 

** Because we have not physically seen the seals from "Museums & Other Sites" we can not vouch for their 100% accuracy.

The soft lead letters are easily distorted which makes the Cyrillic alphabet very difficult to read and mistakes are common.

1747 - 1822.

  Numbers Only seals are for flax with NP, WK or hemp with SPB.
