The Fifteen-cent Prexie

Fourth class use

A number of fifteen-cent fourth class first pound rates were possible during the Prexie period, depending on the time sent and the zone. There was also a fifteen-cent COD one-pound book parcel rate from July 1, 1942 to March 25, 1944.

The item shown is part of a wrapper from a parcel sent locally in 1952. Fifteen cents is the correct local rate for the first pound from October 1, 1951 until October 1, 1953.
