Hi:
I was working in the mail room when first class postage went to 4 cents in 1961.

Subject: [bookshare-discuss] OT: Forever stamps sold now at 41 cents



I'm a three-cent per stamp-memory person.

But I saw about the 41-cent stamp on the tv news last
night. I don't know if the Forever stamp, which is for
sale now for 41 cents, is the same as the Staw Aars
stamp, but it will be usable as a first-class stamp
forever, whatever the rate may change to in the
future.

Is it worth it? I suppose that depends on when you
think the postal rates wll go up. If you're young
enough and use the US Mail it probably is worth buying
a lot of the stamps now.

There also will be a 17-cent stamp out soon.

Here is some info I took from the USPS site--which
requires a lot of searching into the site's depths:

How much will the Forever Stamp cost?
The Forever Stamp will be available in booklets of 20
for $8.20. It will also be available (beginning May
14) from our Automated Postal Centers (APCs) and at
select automated teller machines (ATMs) in sheetlets
of 18 for $7.38.

Will the Forever Stamp be available in coils or other
formats?
No, but we will also issue a nondenominated flag stamp
that will be available in coils of 100 and panes of 20
and 100, as well as individual quantities.
