KGVI FOOD PARCEL LABEL
Myer embossed Parcel Label 5/10 in used condition. During the early post-war years, severe shortages led to the “Food for Britain” campaign. The cost of sending a food parcel weighing between 3lb and 8lb was 3/7, between 8lb and 11 lb was 5/10. The complete embossed parcel labels were overlooked by collectors in the 1940’s so they are scarce today.
