This is my first cover from Dagestan Republic. The covers posted on July 28, 2017 and I received on August 22, 2017. The postmark is perfect and you can see a stamp is written as 'Respublika Dagestan' . The particular stamp issued in 2001 as the part of 'Regions of Russia series. My good friend Asya sent me the cover by exchanging thematic stamps. He specially requested to the postal staff for clear postmark. Thank You Asya for the perfect cover into my collection !
