    Photo ID of Veniamin Platov, Chief of the Archangelsk Inflot, issued on 8 October 1941by the Narkomat (People's Commissariat) of Merchant Fleet.

    Photo ID of Veniamin Platov, Chief of the Archangelsk Inflot, issued on 8 October 1941by the Narkomat (People's Commissariat) of Merchant Fleet.

    The ID is of outstanding quality, 75 mm x 55 mm hard covered booklet format, wrapped in fine burgundy leather with impressed Soviet state emblem and inscription "USSR. People's Commissariat of Seafaring (Merchant) Fleet." The first inside page is hand-signed by the Commissar (Minister) for Merchant Fleet Semyon Dukelskiy. The opposite page shows photo of the owner, issue date of the ID, and its expiration date of 31 December 1941.

    The ID is in excellent condition. The leather cover in particular is extremely well-preserved having bright color and attractive gloss, shows only tiny amount of wear at the corners. The interior is perfectly clean.

    The name of the organization Inflot stands for Inostrannyi Flot or "Foreign Fleet". This agency was responsible for receiving and servicing foreign ships arriving into Soviet ports. When the document was issued in October 1941, seaborne Lend-Lease supplies such as airplanes and tanks to northern ports of Murmansk and Archangelsk provided a critical lifeline for the Soviet military teetering on the brink of collapse. Smooth operations of the arriving convoys and transfer of the war material of course greatly depended on the work of the Inflot. The ID once belonged to one of the key executives responsible for the effort. This is an extremely rare and important historic document from the early Patriotic War era.
