6.1.1 DOMESTIC MAIL — THE USE OF PREPAID METER STAMPS
In the Free City, many private companies used metered machine stamps to indicate prepayment of the postage on their large volumes of post. Two of these companies, however, started to use Polish Post meters for their mail to Poland, in order it seems to take advantage of the lower postal rates.
