: Rocket mail. Seems not cost effective.

The mail consisted entirely of commemorative postal covers addressed to President of the United States Dwight Eisenhower, other government officials, the Postmasters General of all members of the Universal Postal Union, and so on. They contained letters from United States Postmaster General Arthur E. Summerfield.

Reinforces my belief that the postal service makes most of its money acting as a kind of live-action MMORPG, arbitrarily creating things and declaring them to have value.
