Historic Covers Document End of USSR and Rise of Russian Federation
Now you can get two covers marking one of the most significant moments in modern history – the fall of the Soviet Union. One cover is postmarked December 25, 1991, the last day the country was officially known as the Soviet Union, and the second is postmarked the day after, the first day it was known as the Russian Federation.
The earlier cover features a portrait of Soviet leader Mikhail Gorbachev and includes the 1990 stamp commemorating the 73rd anniversary of the October Revolution (Russia #5937). The December 26 cover pictures Boris Yeltsin, the first new leader of the Russian Federation, with the 1991 New Year stamp (Russia #6050).
These covers are over 25 years old and are unusual pieces of history. They'll make neat additions to your collection. Send for yours today.
