"Modern Rubbish" Moscow 1993


This cover has the payment of postage indicated by a boxed OPLACHENO CVYAZ' rubber? stamp.

I take OPLACHNO to mean paid, but what does CVYAZ' mean?

I feel that these envelopes were sold in Moscow already rubber stamped. But it would take an unused copy to back that statement up.

Svyaz' = communications. Soviet postal offices were renamed as "communications agencies" or "communications offices" during the 1920s and the term was widely used for (postal and non-postal) communication.

This handstamp is the first time I've seen wording like that. I've only seen "OPLACHENO/KONTORA SVYAZI" and variations on that.

Thanks for showing that cover Jlechtanski. And thanks for solving an old mystery for me too, Ivo.

Here it is, backside:



And the front side:



Any idea what the big X on the back means?

Communications makes sense. The Commissariat of Posts and Telegraphs set up by the Bolsheviks in 1917 and was reorganized into the People's Commissariat of Communications in 1932.

OPLACHENO and SVYAZ’


In the context of the rubber stamp on the cover posted 1993 in Moscow, does anyone know why it included SVYAZ’. It appears a bit superfluous to me and that OPLACHENO indicated all that was needed!
