The Five-cent Prexie

Domestic air post card rate

The domestic air mail post card rate was five cents from August 1, 1958 through January 6, 1963. By the time this rate went into effect the five-cent Monroe Prexie issue had been replaced by the Liberty Series five-cent Monroe, but supplies of the earlier issue were still available in some locations. The Air Force postal service in Japan was one such, and that is where this post card was mailed, using the domestic rate.
