Russian Post Office
1917 (25 May) address label and part newspaper registered to Petrograd (St. Petersburg) and bearing pair of 7k. arms tied by a clean and readable strike of the 'Ulankom in Mongolia' c.d.s. with serial letter "a" with a second strike at left. The registration label, erroneously spelt "ulankoma" is just tied by the first c.d.s. and manuscript "57" in green crayon. Signed by Holcombe. The Post Office in Ulankom first appeared in the Russian Post Office Guide of 1917 and this is the only example of any mail sent from this office. A fabulous and highly important item of Mongolian postal history. Unique and desirable. Photo
