In 1927, the airmail rate was changed to 10¢ per half ounce, regardless of distance. Because most airmail letters weighed more than one-half ounce, it was necessary to prepare this 20¢ stamp. Like the 10¢ and 15¢ issues released before it, the new stamp was printed in a larger, more distinctive size than the earliest airmail issues. Post Office clerks were easily able to distinguish these from ordinary postal stamps.
