A note regarding rates. The domestic first class rate from August 1, 1949 through December 1, 1953 was 3 yen. Effective December 2, 1953, the rate was 4 yen. Many of the above covers during the 4 yen rate period only bear 3 yen franking. These covers were all from the same source. I believe that the 3 yen covers during the 4 yen rate period may be family reregistration covers and moved at a reduced rate. While most of the covers are not designated for family reregistration, several of these three yen covers have that designation handwritten on them.
