    Roman - 1875, London

    In einer Broschüre, in der Korsetts beworben werden, heißt es:

    ... write direct to XXX giving size, and enclosing P.O.O. ....

    Weiß jemand, wie die Abkürzung P.O.O. übersetzt werden könnte? Ich dachte an Versandkosten, finde diese Abkürzung aber nirgends.

    Vielen Dank!

    Ich vermute mal, dass P.O.O. irgendwas mit Zahlungsmodulaitäten zu tun hat ... payment order (???)

    P.S. @#2: ; in my day I was familiar only with the "postal order" [first documented use 1864], also apparently used in the US; OED glosses them slightly differently, but they seem to be much the same thing; Dictionary: postal order

    In Deutschland gab es die Postanweisung - wobei da der Geldbriefträger das Geld ins Haus brachte.
