Parcel card question


Anybody has - or saw - this kind of parcel card: без цены but with наложенный платеж (without declared value but with C.O.D.)

Here is one such card. If you are interested, I can send probably 10-15 more pictures of similar items.

What color?


Thank you, Gary.

No, there is no need to post any more of them. Just tell me what paper they are on - mine is on pink, yours is on white. What are the others you have?

White and yellowish/almost buff. However, the latter may be due to aging.

Added here is a variety. It is not exactly like yours in the original printing, but has the same usage.

Some statistics would help


Gary, if it's not too much to ask, could you make a list of "my" type of card you have (not "your" variety) stating color and year of use.

Thank you, Alep.

What the numbers before the year (2) and (1) mean - number of cards? And "Moscow" - is it a place of use or a place of issue (if known)? And if place of issue - then which "Moscow" - Moscow OKRUG or Moscow Pochtamt?

The figure is the number of such cards I have. Moscow is the place of use. There is no indication to the place of issue.

Got it. Thanks again.

One more question - an imprecise one: how common is this type of cards? Let's say among cards без цены you have what percentage (approximately) are the ones with наложенным платежем?

This is difficult for me to assess, I have not too many parcel cards. What I noticed is that those безъ цены but с наложеннымъ платежемъ are found from the 1st decade of the century and without indication to the administration that issued them. All the cards from the later period are without с наложеннымъ платежемъ if безъ цены.
