The postal rate for domestic parcels had been changed four days earlier but only two of the highest weight classes were affected. The C.O.D fee was however raised, from 40 öre to 45 öre.
A some what puzzling thing is that the older 25 öre brown Gustaf VI Adolf from 1957 was used instead of the newer 25 öre Gustaf VI Adolf type III from October 1961. Maybe Uppsala 1 still had some stock of the older one?
The new domestic parcel rates effective 1 July 1962: (öre)
|- 1 kg||1 - 3 kg||3 - 5 kg||5 - 7 kg||-10 kg||-15 kg||-20 kg|
*only these weight classes were affected by the raise
