Two postmarks to identify. The first looks so odd, I tend to belive it is not real. The second looks real, but I can't identify it...

The first word on the charity stamp is Kineshma and the last is Kostr[oma province]. There seem to be three letters in the middle, the last being a "d".

Thanks for your help. Maybe OTD?

Maybe, which would indicate a town post office. The principal post office in Kineshma was a full post and telegraph office (kontora).
