Home Forums Mail Talk The price of stamps Reply To: The price of stamps


    I should add that USA “modern” stamps are considered “Forever” stamps, so the stamps I purchased before the price increases will be honored at the current going rate. I have a pretty large stamp cache spanning back years, which means some of my stamps have appreciated in value more than most investments. This only applies to stamps that are “Forever” stamps, though. Stamps that have a printed amount on them are only honored at that printed amount. (This is why I’m amazed at letter writers who use “vintage” stamps with printed amounts. I tried to do that for a while, but doing all the math and keeping up with current going rates was difficult.)
