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

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.
