The *T* Conundrum

 

The *T* Conundrum

 Some seals have an unusual *T* notation under the date. The reason for this is not clear but it may indicate a Customs Tax seal.

  T = TAMOЖHЯ,  ТАМОЖЕННАЯ

 (TAMOZEHNNAYA) = CUSTOMS TAX

 

(Also T could be TAYPOГ. = TAUROGEN,

now TAURAGE a source of Lithuania flax.)

 

"T" symbols on the reverse of seals.

 The range appears to be 1770 - 1787
