The Thirteen-cent Prexie

Fourth class usage

Various Zone and weight combinations at different rate periods provided opportunities for the use of a solo thirteen-cent Prexie.

This label dates from October, 1945, and would have been used on a 2.5 to 3.5 pound package to Zone 4, mailed at the bound printed matter rate. The thirteen-cent rate applied from March 26, 1944 until January 1, 1949, composed of a one-cent surcharge on a twelve-cent rate.

This envelope also was mailed at the bound printed matter rate, for one pound to Zone 1 or 2, which was in effect from February 1, 1954 to February 1, 1960.
