Romanov 1913 booklet from Rostov


Just to pass it on:

In our German Philaforum a Romanov booklet from Rostov was shown.

While the link works, in order to view anything we have to register, auf deutsch at that. Is there any way to see the pictures without doing something we don't verstehen?

Lousy German, I know, but it's the best I can do. Yet, out of curiosity I'd like to see what you're talking about.

The 78k (80k) booklets consisted of 18x1k, 6x3k and 6x7k.

The Rostov-on-Don booket looks like it was originally made up that way by the hand-written 78k and 80k, but the 80k was changed to 72k. Were some stamps removed before sale?

To state the obvious, the blanks on the printed cover seem to indicate that there may have been other configurations sold over the counter by the Rostov post office.

This booklet is a variation of Michel No. MH 3d. The only known example of 3d has a blank space for manuscript cityname. Anything else is similar.
(For full description see Rossica Journal 98-99, Page 55)

Sorry, I did not realized that the pictures are blocked for non-members!

The original set of pictures show that 2 of the 3Kop stamps are removed as well as 4 of the 7 Kop stamps.
I would assume that two 3Kop stamps were sold from the booklet for what reason ever. Then the price on the cover was reduced to the remaining face value of the stamps without the 2kop booklet charge.
Later the buyer used 4 of the 7Kop stamps.
