It should be noted somewhere when the private cancellations/overprints issue gets fleshed out (articles of their own? better discussed in another article?) that private overprints may make a postage stamp invalid for prepayment of postage. --Daniel C. Boyer 15:13, 5 Aug 2003 (UTC)


As more information accrues, here and at cancellations, about private overprints, the subject may either develop its own article, or become a section of an overprints article. Included in information about private overprints should be some of the information contained here: [1]. --Daniel C. Boyer 15:30, 24 Aug 2003 (UTC)


Moved to Private Express Statutes, this is actually a name of a group of laws, the Postal Service refers to them as such, and as the Postal Service is an authority, we should use their nomenclature. Alex756 17:49, 24 Aug 2003 (UTC)


Page does not discuss private carriage on an occasional basis outside of the setting-up of a private delivery service, and the Private Express Statutes do allow for this. --Daniel C. Boyer 12:38, 25 Aug 2003 (UTC)

It is implied, but you can clarify it. — Be bold! — Alex756 16:52, 25 Aug 2003 (UTC)
I think there was a confusion in the article between (1) free carriage with (2) occasional carriage with compensation. I've tried to clarify that and reorganize the material. Alex756 19:26, 25 Aug 2003 (UTC)

It occurs to me that there is an additional minor exception that should be mentioned in this article, though I am not sure where to include it -- delivery of letters occurring completely off post roads (for some reason the entire delivery route is off streets where mail delivery is done). --Daniel C. Boyer 15:33, 12 Mar 2004 (UTC)


Am I the only one who has noticed that the Chapter 3 (Sections 3xy) of Title 39 referenced by Publication 542 do not seem to exist anywhere on the US Code's website for Title 39? --Powerlord 05:45, 1 November 2006 (UTC)

International mail?[edit]

Does the monopoly also extend to international mail? i.e. Can non-urgent international mail (from the U.S. to another country, or vice versa) be sent through a company other than USPS? --208.54.5.136 (talk) 02:59, 4 June 2012 (UTC)

I had learned in grad school that the USPS has a monopology on non-express mail sent abroad from the US, and my reading of 39 USC § 602 confirms this (though this monopoly is subject to the exception in 39 USC § 601 for when you pay six times the USPS rate). However, I can find no law covering mail from abroad to be delivered in the U.S. (141.211.86.180 (talk) 18:04, 12 March 2013 (UTC))
