I'm working on cataloging and indexing my covers and came across this one. It has an interesting cancel stating "Revalued to 15c". Seeing as it started out as a 16c prepaid envelope, can anyone tell me what was happening then to cause this?

Regards ... Tim.

Apparently, the 16-cent envelope was printed in preparation for a rate increase to 16-cents, but the approved rate that went into effect on 29 May 1978 was 15-cents. (Remember the A-rate stamps?) This envelope was actually revalued to 15-cents, but that revaluation is covered up by your 13-cent stamps.
