Postmark with the letter "E" in a form not often seen


The attached postcard is from Oreshki to Ostashkov - both in Tver' province. Note the letter "E" in OrEshki. The use of this old orthography letter is not very common in postmarks, but not rare by any means.

Can someone show us more examples?

The letter "E" as seen in this postmark from KEl'tsy is noted much more frequently.

Blagoveshchensk also used this letter on some cancels - see Robinson's Siberia book.

Excellent example. Moscow's Central Postal Section also used it briefly.

Here is another example from a 1899 registration mark (instead of a label)

The letter of interest in this thread is shown in a cropped image from the original entry. It is the letter after OP and before the sh.

tberger's cover is very nice and an excellent example of the commonly seen letter.
