Arrangement of Stock
Q8-8.     The  Postal  Operations  Manual  divides adhesive-backed  postage  stamps  into  three basic types.  Name the three types. Q8-9. Regular stamps are issued in what minimum and maximum amounts? Q8-10.   What  is  the  purpose  of  commemorative stamps? Now turn to appendix 1 to check your answers. POSTAL STATIONERY Learning Objective:  Recall the different types of postal stationery available at an MPO. Aerogrammes,  stamped  cards,  and  stamped envelopes are examples of postal stationery.  Each of these  items  may  be  issued  to  you  as  part  of  your postage  stock.    Remember  that  prices  on  postal stationery are subject to change, and you should keep yourself  informed  as  to  the  current  selling  price  of aerogrammes, stamped cards, and stamped envelopes. The  DMM,  IMM,  and  Postal  Bulletin  are  the references for this information. AEROGRAMMES Aerogrammes  (air  letter  sheets),  which  can  be folded into the form of an envelope and sealed, may be sent  by  air  to  all  countries.    These  sheets,  bearing imprinted  postage,  can  be  sold  at  all  post  offices. Enclosures  are  NOT  permitted.   The  use  of  tape  or stickers  to  seal  aerogrammes  is  prohibited. Aerogrammes  may  be  registered  after  payment  of  a registry fee.  Refer to the IMM for the current price. STAMPED CARDS The USPS supplies stamped cards with a postage stamp  printed  or  impressed  on  it  for  the  purpose  of transmitting a message.  The USPS sells two stamped cards; one is a double stamped card with one half of the card being a reply card, the other is a single card.  Your MPO  will  normally  only  stock  single-piece  rate stamped cards.  Selling price for the stamped cards is the First-Class rate of postage for a single card, double that for a double reply-paid card, plus an additional charge for the card or double card.  Refer to Module R of the DMM for the current prices for stamped cards. STAMPED ENVELOPES Stamped envelopes are made of high-grade paper that will withstand any ordinary handling to which a letter  may  be  subjected.    Stamped  envelopes  are available  in  plain  or  personalized  format  with  four different types each.   Your MPO will normally only supply plain stamped envelopes. Regular plain stamped envelopes are available at the  First-Class  postage  rate  plus  a  charge  for  the envelope. At the time this manual was written, this cost was  .33  cents  for  the  postage  and  .07  cents  for  the envelope; total cost to customer of .40 cents. Two sizes are available, size No. 6-3/4 and size No. 10.  Single stamped envelopes, in either size, are sold at the same price; refer to Module R of the DMM for the current price.     Discount  prices  are  available  when arrangements  are  made  for  individuals  to  purchase envelopes in multiples of 500. CARE AND PROTECTION OF STOCK AND FUNDS Learning  Objective:    Recall  the  procedures for properly caring for postal effects. Stamps, postal stationery, and other accountable items must be protected at all times.   At the finance window, keep your funds and stock stored in a cash drawer  that  will  accommodate  the  different denominations of coins, bills, and the postage stock items of the highest demand. Cash  drawers  are  designed  to  keep  postal  stock beyond  the  reach  and  sight  of  the  customers.    For security  reasons  you  must  always  lock  your  cash drawer during temporary absences from the window. At night and when the post office is closed, place all funds and stamp stock in your assigned safe. Duplicate  combinations  and  keys  to  cashboxes, cash drawers, or safes in which funds and postal stock are  stored,  should  be  sealed  in  PS  Form  3977s, Duplicate Key Inventory (Envelope).   They must be safeguarded by the COPE (unless you are the COPE then  by  another  designated  individual).    PS  Form 3977s should be receipted for on a modified PS Form 1096 (Cash Receipt). You should place your name, the description of the contents, and the location of the applicable container on  the  face  of  the  envelope(s).    In  addition,  your signature  and  the  signature  of  the  designated 8-3
