I seem to recall that the flap was just tucked in in the olden days when I was young.  Wasn't there a differential postage rate?

As I recall it was 21/2d to send a card in an unsealed envelope, and 3d to send a sealed letter.
Slightly younger than me then. I remember 2 1/2d for s letter and  2d for pc, or open envelope followed by 3d etc
