Although postal regulations required letter mail be marked with the date and origin of mailing, nothing was specifically said about other types of mail except that all stamps were to be cancelled. So in the case of printed matter rate, such as this, examples are sometimes encountered without a circular date stamp, as that took extra time to apply and was eliminated to save time, especially in big cities.
