The 7.00 rate was for a 3 kilo parcel, but this parcel was found to weigh 4 kilos, thus the additional franking was added at the post office. This is the only such example of additional franking that I can recall having in 33 years. Meters on parcel cards are scarce.

Finland #262 with TJUDÖ (Åland) bridge-style cancellation on neat cover to Stockholm. Though the year date is not clear, the 12m rate to Sweden as double rate ran only 16 January 1946 through 31 December 1946 and as single rate only 1 January 1948 through 30 November 1948. This device was the first postmark at Tjudö and it is interesting to note that Mattsen only recorded it used in 1950. If the franking is to be relied upon, then this usage moves the cancel usage range back at least a couple years. Regardless, I believe that this is the ONLY pre-1970s TJUDÖ cover I have ever had (in 32 years)! Quite scarce.

305 x3, 302 [40m Woodchopper; 10m Green M-30] on 1954 air cover to the U.S. This is a very high postage rate (130 marks) for a cover to the U.S. The published postage rate charts for this period are confusing and appear to have some errors. At 50 grams, the rate would likely have been 120 marks; 55 grams at 132 marks. However, I am not satisfied with this calculation and cannot say whether this cover is correctly paid or not - my experience suggests that it IS correctly paid, but I cannot quote the rate at the moment. Still, an unusual franking. Note that most uses with multiple examples of the 40m Woodchopper stamp are parcel cards, not envelopes.
