Rossica has introduced a new identification service, free to members, and a minimal $5 fee for non-members. This is not an opinion of authenticity service,
but is offered to help collectors tap the vast wealth of knowledge at the Society to help identify items in their collection that might be difficult to identify.

The Samovar - Rossica's Discussion Forum
The Samovar is the Rossica Society's discussion forum, where all things philatelically Russia and related are discussed. Every forum except the Society Forum is
available for viewing by the general public. Visitors that wish to participate in our forum discussions must register first.
The Rossica Virtual Gallery (RVG)
Ever since the early 1980s, the Rossica Society would preserve information and material contained in its members' exhibits, and make that information
available to members through photocopies (usually black-and-white) or CDs/DVDs. Today, the Rossica Society is pleased to share our award-winning
exhibits to the public through our digital forum, The Rossica Society Virtual Gallery, or RVG. We have more than 36 exhibits digitized, and available
for viewing on a computer.
