Kingdom of Poland - money letters

Leshek - 12/10/2009 at 14:03

I am going to write a study on the money letters /denezhnoe/ from the period of KP. Letters from the beginning of the twentieth century are generally well known, but I do not have letters from the middle and late nineteenth century. I'm looking for the scans of these letters and clear wax seals and literature - postal regulations. Can someone help me?
I show below a letter from Lodz - 1 PO and wax seals - large for a insured mail, and four for private correspondence.

Wax seal / strakhovaja kor. / from Lodz has a different pattern than that from Lublin or Ostrolenka /below/. Are there any other designs?
And before 1903 there was no "blue" labels recording.

The blue-bordered label for insured mail was introduced on 1 August 1904.

Yes, they had early (1903) been tried in post offices in S.Petersburg
