Moscow-69 postmark


In the book "A study of the postmarks of Moscow" (page 72) by G. Combs and N. Warr it was marked that town post sub-office #69 began to operate in 1915. There is a postcard which shows that it operated already in 1914 (8.10).

It is not clear on the postcard so I attach the scan of the postmark.

All dates are relative based on the source material. This is a lovely example of evidence supporting a change. Many thanks for the update! :)
