Any evidence that this might have been a double weight cover?

Well, that's the ONLY possibility in this case - weighed over 1 and less than 2 ounces.

This is very approximate, airmail 6c per ounce, 1934 to 1958, which picks up all of World War II.

Wow, you mean there have been times when postage rates went DOWN?? GASP!

The envelope is good and empty, so I can't comment on what it may have actually weighed...

Nice airmail cover there Nells250. Would anyone know what the price would be for the cover would be if unused. I have some that is marked APO as well. I cant wait until I get everything sorted and post some pics. Say Nells250 do you have any V Mail envelopes with the instruction printed on them? Do you collect airmail items?

I have plenty of mint V-mails. Do you want scans of the various types?

Thanks Russ those are the ones I have in mint condition. So what about a good price. I've seen anywhere from 2.00 to 10.00. is that about right. I just love this forum. And sorry for the late reply to you. Work is keeping me pretty busy right now.

I have a whole collection of covers much like this one (well, except for postage due) with all original letters that were written to my grandmother from her brother deployed in WWII. I had the great privilege of meeting him once.

This is a cover that has quite a few things going for it. Donald E. Ganger was born in 1922 and was from Elkhart, IL and entered the service on 11/11/1942, and served for "Duration of War, Plus 6 Months".

Wow! what a lot of "and's"
