The PiLPD (ПИЛП) Conundrum

(Hemp and Flax Port (Dockside) Inspectors)

After 1829 there was a new category of inspectors formed to combat the lack of faith in

 the old grading system. The inspectors worked at the port, or on the dockside, and were

licensed to brack hemp or flax. From the numbers on the seals it is hard to say whether

they are hemp or flax, however I am presuming 2H and N2 are 2nd sort (grade) flax.

 

 
  Deciphering PiLPD Seals
1829 - 1841.

  PiLPD (ПИЛПД) seals were introduced in 1829 to cater for

the lack in faith of the old grading. These seals can be hemp or flax.

  PiLPD (ПИЛПД) = Penkovy i L'nyanoy Portovy Dosmotr

  = Hemp and Flax Port Inspector or "Dockside Inspectors."
