The Nine-cent Prexie

Triple three-cent surface rate to PUAS countries

Surface postage to Canada was three cents from September 1, 1931 until August 1, 1958.

This triple-weight cover was sent to Canada in 1949 using a solo nine-cent Prexie.

A letter sent to Peru at three times the three-cent PUAS rate in 1939.

Three times the PUAS surface rate was paid on this cover even though it did not enter the mails until it arrived at Venezuela.
