- In the upper right corner there is a state stamp with official price for such a document. It states the value of 90 kopecks in silver. But at the top in the middle there is a red stamp with a new price approved in 1862: 1 ruble. On the left field of the letter there is a note: "No. 11169". Apparently it refers to the document number. – Ed.
