Fomin's Paper types


Ceresa in his discussion of paper types refers to Fomin's Paper Type K and M.

I noted several references to an EF Fomin in the Rossica journal archives but nothing on his paper descriptions.

Does any member have references and/or a description of Fomin's paper types?

I think that may be a reference from the 1997 Fomin. I don't have a copy but perhaps the Rossica Library does?

In short:
Paper K: Ordinary paper 0.06-0.065 mm thick. The same as used for the 1st RSFSR issue 1 to 20 rub. as well as for latest printings of the Imperial Arms definitives. It has sometimes watermarks on the sheet edges.
Paper M: A little thicker (0.07-0.075 mm) white paper used for the later prrintings of this issue as well as for the 1921 Jubilee issue.
Fomin gives also more detailed descriptions with some illustrations of the paper structure.

Formin's Paper continued


Can we amplify the short ? Am I correct??

Fomin's Paper K of ordinary paper thickness of 0.060 to 0.065 mm has a horizontal mesh or weave pattern, whereas Formin's paper M of slightly thicker, whiter paper with a thickness of 0.070 to 0.075 has a vertical mesh or weave.
