16¢ Sheet Stamp Solo Use on Double Weight Air Mail

The air mail rate for a letter weighing up to one ounce and mailed from March 26, 1944 thru November 31, 1946 was 8¢. Currently, the number of solo uses of the 16-cent sheet stamp paying double the air mail rate on a cover mailed during that period is: 1. 

Description: Double Weight Air Mail cover mailed July 1, 1946 from New York City to Los Angeles, California with a solo 16¢ Prexie paying twice the 8¢ air mail letter rate.
