Photo ID of the Chief of the Archangelsk Inflot, the agency servicing foreign ships arriving in Soviet ports. This highly unusual, high quality document was issued by the Narkomat of Merchant Fleet in October 1941, during early Patriotic War period. At the time, seaborne Lend-Lease military supplies from the UK to the Soviet norther ports such as Archangelsk provided a critical lifeline for the Soviet Union teetering on the brink of collapse. The ID is in excellent condition.

A very uncommon document in excellent condition.
