Easier to "see" the 3 than a 5. Perhaps if we saw a "very characteristic Russian numeral 3"...

After that I have to agree with it being 30
It's the middle of the three that's a give away now

One has to take into consideration the cancel types between the circular ,rectangular,lozenge dotted cancels.They sometimes used slightly different numeral types.In the rectangular dotted type, the 3 & 5 could be confused because the middle section of the 5 points down like the 3.

The "3" is by no means a slam dunk. The numerals were not uniform across postmarks.

This page is a great repository of info pertaining to these postmarks:

I'm pretty sure it's 50
I know my drawing probably doesn't make sense
But the middle of the three would extend out passed the bottom
Where the 5 meets (if that makes sense)
