Ulankom post office
The Ulankom post office stood in a remote region of Mongolia

Ulankom is a town in Mongolia that was the site of a Russian post office for less than a year. It was opened in 1917 and closed immediately after the October Revolution on November 7-8.

The cover is the only recorded piece of mail to pass through the office, making it highly desirable to collectors of Russian postal history.
