I'm not sure what to call this ... I can't even pick a date off of it. My best guess is 1991. Anyway it's pretty interesting. If anyone can add to the description ...

It is 1991, January 7, 1991. The Roman numeral in the middle is the month and number on the left side is the day. This is a printed meter that was cut off from an envelope.

thanks Battlestamps. I assume it was a letter or parcel coming out of the Penal Colony? Rather than sell stamps they likely just had their own meter?
