Private Express Mail Booklet FDC

Additional Stamped Markings on Private Express Mail Covers

Two additional rubber stamped markings will appear on the Private Express Mail Covers in addition to the NASA Local Post Cancel.   These markings are required to meet postal regulations for delivery and handling of the “extremely urgent” mail.

The first two-line marking is in green ink and reads, “This letter delivered by NASA Local Post, with minimum service of $3.00 charged.”

The second two-line marking is in red ink and reads, “Extremely Urgent, Must be delivered by 5:00 p.m. of postmarked date.”
