6.1.1 DOMESTIC MAIL — THE USE OF CASH PAYMENT MARKS
From 1 July 1923 until 1929 the OPŁATA RYCZAŁTOWANA-system was used. A fixed sum had to be paid in cash for all mail sent during a given period, based on the amount of mail sent in the previous period. All such mail was to be marked with a handstamp Opłata ryczałtowana na mocy art. 23 ust. z d. 3.6.24 r. o poczcie, telegrafie i telefonie, indicating the system and the paragraph and the date of the publication of the regulation. In Gdańsk only official institutions were using this system of cash payment.
