On December 1, 1923 the Polish post office Gdaz’isk 1 stopped preparing the parcel cards for packages arriving from the USA Instead of this, only the small sheds with the table for calculating postage due that had to be paid by the recipient in Poland were glued on one of the two customs-declarations that were made for each package by the American and other post offices,

Mailbags and crates with packages that amved from overseas countries were sent from the Polith harbor post office in (Idai’isk by train to Poland For these mailbags and crates, special labels were printed as well, each of them indicating the destination post office in Poland, the number of packages that were packed and the name of the post men who packed everything Also here we see a difference in the number of the harbor Post office in Gdatlsk, depending on whether the label was used before or after August 1, 1926

3 Parcels and mailbags from Poland to overseas countries

In the Polish harbor post office, mailbags and crates with packages amved by train from post offices all over Poland. These mailbags and crates had to be shipped to overseas destinations. Also mailbags that were received in Gdaiisk from overseas destinations and were ençtied in the C’idaisk harbor post office had to be returned For those ShipiTlents, special labels were prepared for each destinaixin as well,

As we can see on the printing numbers that are below some of the labels, they were printed especially for the Polish Post Management in Gdaisk by either the Drukainia Gdarska or H.Feller’a Nast S Czewski from Gdansk
