The Twenty-four-cent Prexie

Registered, second step indemnity, return receipt

Registry with indemnity from $5.01 through $25 was eighteen cents from July 1, 1932 until March 26, 1944. The fee for a return receipt was three cents from April 15, 1925 until March 26, 1944, and first class postage was three cents per ounce from July 1, 1932 until August 1, 1958. Thus, first class mail with second step indemnity and return receipt requested cost twenty-four cents from July 6, 1932 until March 26, 1944.

This cover, mailed in 1941, still contains two letters indicating that $17 was enclosed. Hence the second step registry.
