Reply To: Russian external postcard rates

vasilis opsimos

Dear Michael,

in the period May 1st, 1936 to June 10th, 1950, the international postcard rate from the Soviet Union was 30 kopecks. The registration charge was 80k (hence a registered card cost 1R 10k). The airmail surcharge was 1R – hence a registered airmail card cost 2R 10k.

In the period September 1st, 1917 to March 10th, 1918, the international postcard rate was 8 kopecks.

Hope this helps.
