Considering the high value, it could be part of a perfin.

Fine, but was it used in Russia in 1913? I know nothing about perfins though.
Was there any reason to make it apart from preventing stealing a stamp?

Numeral or Letter?


Is it the numeral "3" or the Cyrillic letter "З" as in "ОБРАЗЕЦЬ" (SPECIMEN)?

Specimen with what appears to be a smudged postmark does not make a lot of sense, unless it is bogus?

In his collection dealing with Odessa perfins (the OPK perfins shown on the webpage above) Ian Baillie wrote:
"Punched Russian stamps have been removed from money transfer order cards: these cards were defaced after the stamps, indicating the payment of the charge for transferring the money, have bee affixed". The following literature is given: British Journal of Russian Philately 31, BJRP Vol. 49, pp. 32/3, article by B. Pritt, and Filatelaya SSR Feb. 1973, article by V. Aleksandrov.

Hmmm. I think the Rossica journal also had an article on perfins recently.
