The Series of 1851-57

In 1851, Congress diminished postal rates. These new rates for all intents and purposes disposed of separation as a component and made a requirement for new divisions. The 1¢ stamp was utilized on all mail up to 3 ounces and on “drop letters” which were sent to the same town. The single letter rate, in view of a half ounce, was changed to 3¢ for mail not over a separation of 3,000 miles. Mail surpassing this separation was brought down to 6¢. In 1855, the rate for letters more than 3,000 miles changed to 10¢.

Prepayment was still discretionary. On the off chance that postage was paid by the recipient upon receipt, the rate was higher. Because of expanded gather rates, the utilization of postage stamps was extraordinarily animated. In 1855, pre-installment was made compulsory.
