Thanks Alan for sharing this. I have in my stock a 1 ruble Romanov used on a parcel card from Moscow to Liège (Belgium) on the 4th January 1913. I have seen another card from the same correspondance with the same date and franking as well in another collection. This is the earliest use of any Romanov ruble value that I have ever seen. Earlier dates are known (going back as far as the 31th december 1912) for the kopecks adhesives, discussed previously for example by the late Rev. Tann. Maxime Citerne
