The Three-cent Prexie

Drop letter at a non-carrier post office

Three cents was the non-carrier post office drop rate for a one ounce or less letter from August 1, 1958 until January 7, 1963. The three-cent Liberty series stamp was issued in 1954, so use of a Prexie on such a letter is quite unusual.

This letter was sent within Cuba, New York in 1961. (From the collection of Roland Austin.)
