Konsk is a small location in Radom province. According to the Robinson and Kiryushkin work "List of Post Offices in the Russian Empire," it held the status of pochtovoe uchrezhdenie until December 1885 when the status was upgraded to a PTK. The example here from 1890 shows it as a pochtovoe otdelenie, serial 1.

The letter is to Prussia and there is a foreign dispatch office of Warsaw mark on the reverse.
