Thank you, I will. I used to collect stamps but lost interest in the late 70s after the bicentennial! Was really surprised to see these in modern postage!
Was that from me? Lol. I sent an envelope with 2 forever stamps and a air mail one a few months ago. I cant remember if it was you or another trade on Numista, haha.
Tracking was 100%, delivery was way quicker than a bunch of other orders I'm now waiting weeks for!
You might as well use them for postage.
Stamp dealers will pay about 50-80% of face value.
I use them for mailing occasionally.
The problem is the number of stamps required can leave no room for the address.
3¢ stamps were in use for years.
Do your math and see how many would be required to mail a regular 1 oz letter today.
The answer is --> 19.
Haha, I know!!! I've sent envelopes with coins where over half of the white is covered by stamps. I wonder what the post office worker is thinking...
My friend, I just got charged 75 cents to send a basic envelope with a birthday note for my daughter last weekend! Couldn't believe it!
Hmm. Unless its over 1 oz or oversized it should just cost 55 cents...
That was one of the envelopes you sent me. I didn't know if you'd mind that I mentioned you in my original post.
No problem, haha. As long as you don't show my address
Most cards are considered oversize anymore.
That's what was odd, it was a standard thin letter sized envelope, no card, just a note and a mercury dime pendant!
