What is shown above are so claeed Numerator postmarks

As part of the efforts of the Russian postal administration to speed their services numerator postmarks were introduced beginning in 1912 and they were still in use in Sovjet times. On the left they showed the cyrillic "3" and on the right the name of the post office, the number of the letter, and additional identification. There is only one Numerator postmark from Riga known which shows a "R" instead the "3".

Color: red. lilac, or black

You can find a large amount on information on this topic in Harry von Hofmann's book "3AKA3HOE - Recommandirt". Some scans you can find on my webpage at http://de.geocities.com/tbbch/RPH/RPH.htm at "My Interests".
