From FPO AE 09619 (Naples, Italy) to a ship with an FPO AA 34090 address operating in the Mediterranean area. When a customer presents an article for mailing at your  overseas  MPO  addressed  to  a  ship  served  by  a different  postmaster,  you  should  verify  if  the  ship  is operating in your overseas area or is in the U.S.  You should  always  give  the  customer  the  best  service possible at the lowest rate of postage and be familiar with  the  no-cost  intra-theater  delivery  service  (IDS) that is discussed later in chapter 9. TWO OR MORE PACKAGES Two or more packages may be mailed as a single package  if  the  packages  are  about  the  same  size  or shape, or they are an integral part of one article.  The packages  must  be  securely  wrapped  or  fastened together and must not, together, exceed the maximum weight or size limits.

These articles must be charged the 15-pound rate for the appropriate zone. ENDORSEMENTS An endorsement is a marking on mail that shows the rate of postage charged and any additional service the mail is to receive.   Mark all endorsements with a rubber  handstamp. First-Class  endorsements  are required  on  large  envelopes  and  small  parcels weighing  less  than  13  ounces. Endorsements  for standard size First-Class letters are not required. Place the endorsement on the address side between the “delivery address” and the “postage.”  Endorse all articles sent at the priority rate by affixing USPS Label 106 (Priority Mail Strip), 106-A (Priority Mail Tape) or  107  (Priority  Mail  Sticker). If  the  size  of  the article(s) being mailed prohibit use of the labels you can use a Priority, or Priority Mail rubber handstamp to apply the endorsement.  See figures 4-4 and 4-5. CANCELING THE STAMPS One of the last things you will do in processing an  article  is  cancel  the  stamps.   Cancel  all  stamps using  a  bar  canceler  (Killer  Bars)  or  a  machine canceler.   Always  cancel  stamps  with  black  ink  to prevent reuse. 4-10 PCf0404 Able B.
