Stamps Commemorating Tzar Issued in St.Petersburg
03.28.2005 18:09

Tsar Alexander II A special cancellation of a series of four postage stamps, a miniature sheet and a special envelope, devoted to Tsar Alexander II, is scheduled at St. Petersburg's main post office Monday, the Federal Post Communication's local directorate announced.

The stamps, issued as a part of the History of the Russian State series, bear miniature scenes depicting four stages of the Emperor's life: as Crown Prince with Zhukovsky as a child, at his coronation ceremony, as emperor in his study and at the theater of military operations during the Russian-Turkish War. Alexander II and the place of his death are depicted on the miniature sheet.

Two hundred thousand stamps were issued, along with 100,000 miniature sheets and 25,000 envelopes.

The envelopes are on sale in the city and the Leningrad region, and the stamps will go on sale on the day of their special cancellation.

Alexander II was known as the tsar-liberator for abolishing serfdom. He survived several assassination attempts, but was killed on March 1, 1881 in St. Petersburg by a member of the Narodnaya Volya terrorist organization.
