Description:- Postal Notes were issued to supplement money order service. They were affixed and cancelled by Postal clerks to make up fractions of a dollar. Postal Note stamps allowed people send smaller amounts of money (up to $10) at a lower cost than money orders. The cost to send a smaller-valued money order was relatively high, so postal notes gave customers a cheaper option. On March 31, 1951, Postal Note stamps were discontinued after just six years of use.
