    I have the new Royal Mail leaflet from July but didn't think that many prices had changed since the March leaflet. Perhaps I didn't notice what they were because I'm using up loads of stamps I already have.

    I checked out on the Royal Mail web-site and the new July leaflet came out because of a business service increase to the US.

    July's was not only because of Covid but also the USPS/UPU thing from last year. Affected parcel rates, and gave the US its own zone.

    September's is worldwide affecting international mail: +3p first airmail rate, +7p for outside Europe 20g. Surface/economy not affected. Rupert Bear issue will have the new values on.

    Maybe itís a ďcompromiseĒ?

    We can barely remember the 60g figure or indeed those prices. Potter posted that info in 2015.
    The rates we currently have for the US are 10g for £1.42, 20g for £1.63 and 100g for £2.42. No compromises there....

    For letters to the US I just chuck on a £1.63 stamp and bung it in the post. Few of my letters are less than 20g and most, I suspect, are over but they get there without fuss. Iíve even had arrive a day earlier than usual when Iíd forgotten to put a stamp on. Maybe they were impressed by the 1970s airmail envelope.
    Some days, it's hardly worth chewing through the leather straps....

    When I send letters to the US I can put on a qualifying E stamp (less than 10 grams) if I use two A4 sheets or less of Tomoe River 52grams or Airmail paper in an Airmail envelope. I can also buy mint and unused E stamps in packs of 20 on ebay at a reasonable saving on the regular price.
    It means I can't include inserts or use my nice homemade envelopes, but it works for me.
