6.1.3 DOMESTIC MAIL — OFFICIAL MAIL
From the outset, one of the main functions of the Polish Post in the Free City was the exchange of official mail between Polish officials in the Free City and in Poland. From 1 July 1923 until 31 August 1928 the OPŁATA RYCZAŁTOWANA-system was used for official mail. A fixed sum had to be paid for all official 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.
