Registered Letter from former Soviet Union (CCCP) - Part 3
Another similar Soviet Union letter. This letter sent on 24 Nov 1989 from Moscow and received on 8 Dec 1989, Kuala Lumpur. The back side of this cover is badly infected by fungus due to long period and not keep in proper storage. The front side of the cover looked fine. The mailing rate was 150k with registered airmail and heavier weight than the standard letter.
A common pictorials can be found in Soviet's stamps are space related topics, sports and famous communist figure such as Valdimir Lenin. With Soviet's interesting history, cold war, revolution, it's rich communist development and finally collapsed and dissolved. It is worth to study USSR through philately.
