The Twenty-cent Prexie

Free mail with COD charge

The COD fee for collection and indemnity greater than $2.50 but less than or equal to $5.00 was twenty cents from November 1, 1944 to January 1, 1949, and for collection and indemnity less than or equal to $2.50 from January 1, 1949 until January 1, 1952.

This is a mailing label from a package sent free from the United States Printing Office, Division of Public Documents, with a twenty-cent COD fee. Nothing on it indicates when it was sent, so it is impossible to tell which of the two indemnity levels the fee covered.
