Additional Details:
The "Mailomat" is a coin-operated U. S. mailbox for people who have letters to mail - and no stamps. It is a "Self -service post office" that mails your letters without need of adhesive stamps. To mail a letter you (1) drop many in coin slot (2) dial correct postage denomination (3) insert letter in letter slot. the machine does the rest; automatically takes you letter, prints postage and postmark on it, and holds it for collection . . . provides postage from 1c to 33c, including Air Mail. special Delivery, etc., with no premium for postage. Metered mail needs less post office handling, often catches earlier trains and planes, starts on its way sooner. The "Mailomat" is a pre-war invention of Pitney-Bowes Postage meter co., Stamford, Conn., now converted to war production; was developed in cooperation with the U. S. Post Office Dept. to facilitate public use of the mails in post office lobbies. railway terminals, etc. Manufacturing will begin when the war is won. Try this new "stampless" postal service own. Use this card to say "hello" to that boy is Service. and when using the mails these days. at home or office, remember to mail early and often . . . to help clear the track for war mail . . . and to help the Post Office help you!
