Well, if you were to win the attached auction, it would be $1.

As in "For you, $1." "Wait, let me get a price check - $1" "$1"

OK, but being a non-huge company, I don't consider *their* cost, only
what it would cost me! Besides, I don't think FedEx Ground has that
steep a discount policy - I sent a U1-170e, all 40 pounds of it, to MA
from NJ for a whopping $10.33 via FedEx Ground.

That is just under $0.26/lb, while the USPS is $0.37/oz ;^)

I'm sorry, I don't mean to be an Anysystem.com cheerleader/defender,
just one of many happy customers of theirs...
