From Ged ....

ЛД = LD / B.KOHOBAЛOB / N26 /// SPB / NP._3 / I. P / 1836
Flax inspector V.KONOVALOV working out of number 26 post in the port of Konigsberg, Kronstadt, Libnau, Memel, Narva, Pernau, Reval, Riga, St Petersburg, or Tilsit the year 1836.. . all of these ports used SPB for their flax seals after the year 1829 as a certification of the FLAX bracking (inspection) by the Russian Empire.. SPB does not mean St Petersburg
The Grower/Owner/Agent initials are IP with 3rd grade flax plants in the bale.
.see ref IDS 1033 on
Total bale seals on the database on 28th February 2017 is 5394 seals
