Sunday Stamps # 166

Good evening friends, or good morning if you are reading this on Sunday morning.  It is a lovely evening, 75 degrees F   (24 C) so I guess Spring is finally here.  The grass is greening up!

Time for Sunday Stamps.

This week's theme is: old or vintage stamps from your own country.
I received the group below recently on a Postcrossing postcard from the USA.

  The 4 cent stamp I would say is from the early 60's given the date on it.  The other two stamps are from the 1970's.  US postage stamps have never been devalued.  You can use old stamps, back to 1865,  for current postage, according to Wikianswers. [This is NOT the case for all countries.] Of course, you will need several stamps to equal the postage due today.  And check the value of some of those old ones!  They may be worth more unused.

What vintage stamps can you share this week?

I have a page on Facebook: keep up with my infrequent  stamp, postcard, and quilt posts at

Theme next week: Zodiacal and zodiac signs stamps.
Theme two weeks from now: of children and for children.

We had some spring weather in the 60s this past week, but it is going to be cold again starting tomorrow--maybe even some more snow!

It's nice that you could use the vintage stamps. I have received some ancient stamps from the USA. In Spain we can exchange the old stamps in the big post offices, but not use them any more... :(

I had to look up Emily Bissell and discovered it was her who introduced the Christmas Seals stamps.
