56070339
Israel: medallion of the 12th Maccabiah (Maccabi Games), 1985; 59mm, 91.8g. The quotation "And the Maccabiim Returned to Modiim" may be a mis-spelling (in English and Hebrew) for the historical city of "Modiin" - perhaps a non-Israeli designer of the medal.

2/1988 Soviet postkrieg measure against Israeli Archeology stamp on mail to MOSCOW
59371298
Soviet subtle 'postkrieg' against Israel: 28-2-1988 registered airmail cover from RISHON LE ZION to MOSCOW (USSR) for "personal delivery", franked 2.40NIS per FA-38 period rate & franked with 1.40nis 'Medical Engineering' + 1nis 'Archeology in Jerusalem' - the latter being boycotted by the Soviet authorities for promoting Israeli sovereignty in united Jerusalem: the cover was backstamped 15-5-88 (long 2 month transit time for airmail - deliberately handled slowly) MOSCOW transit, with the address albeit being translated to Russian - but then being cross out and cover tied by French language "Return | Refused" instructional marking handstamp. With such a long and precise address it's clear that the senders knew the letter's delivery may encounter difficulty and that the official reason given for mail's return was an excuse.

Undocumented case in Postkrieg research: in the 1970's and 80's the USSR took many active postkrieg measures against Jewish and Zionist targets - many of which remain undocumented in Postkrieg literature, and as a 10 Feb. 1986 Jewish Telegraphic Agency report notes, about the Soviet Union's refusal to accept mail franked with the 1986 Herzl stand-by definitives, the Soviet post office didn't resort to dramatic postal markings and simply marked the refused mail with standard "addressee unknown" handstamps. Here too, although not a documented example with the Archeology stamps but confirmed by numerous similar covers studied, the USSR used subtle bureaucratic procedures to deny postal service (though it's accentuated by the senders' use of postal services to track shipment and confirm delivery to known addresses) - all undocumented in the Postkrieg catalogue.

2/1981 overt Soviet Postkrieg measure againt Libi Fund logo postmark on Israeli mail
58471300
Soviet overt 'postkrieg' against Israel: 1-02-1981 airmail cover from Ashdod (return-addressed new immigrants absorption center PLADOT) to USSR (interestingly no addressee name) franked 2.80IS per period rate & tied by 'LIBI Fund' machine slogan cancel; backstamped 10-02-81 MOSCOW transit where refused further service: address crossed out with manuscript "arrow-cross", pointing to the problematic cachet + cover stamped "retour"; on return Israeli post office applied 3-lined instructional marking handstamp "Regretfully this postal object was returned from the USSR because of a postmark which has since been removed from service". The USSR objected to the "Defense Fund for Israel" display and refused to give the letter further postal service. Opened roughly at back but complete, vertical fold.
