Part B. Multiple Franking

In this section, rates greater than 1s. and up to 2s. are shown. Since the post office did not issue stamps with denominations between 1s. and 2s. 6d., rates falling within this range required multiple franking. The purpose of this section is to show examples of how the 7d. to 1s. stamps were used to pay rates greater than 1s. No attempt has been made to provide a comprehensive list of rates.
