The postage rate at this time was 4/6d per ½oz (the space above the customs label suggests a 5/- stamp has fallen off) thus paying the rate of 4/6d x 90 ½oz = 45oz. An outstanding item for an airmail exhibit. [Includes April 2007 'Stamp News' article titled 'Philately of Epic Proportions' featuring this item]
