    Hello Z, I'm sorting through my US stamps now, not spotted any of those yet, just been separating themes and bagging the rest into 25 different for the kids. I'll have to recheck them, just to say I've seen one.
    Just to clarify, are they of a fixed value? or a value that increases with inflation IE half ounce mail for 50 miles, then and now?
    Regards, James.

    The non denominated stamps pre-date the Forever stamps and all have a fixed value.

    Thank you H, not suitable as a hedge against inflation then, your 10c nds has a postal value of about 10% today. whereas the forever stamps increase in postal value, same as our NVI's, some of which have increased in value by 315% in 25 years. Better than my UK bank interest rates (½% PA).

    Sorry to interject Zee I didn't know if you knew the answer or not. I've always struggled with remembering the values of those stamps and constantly have to look them up as I have a lot of them to use up.

    Just found this site. It breaks down U.S. stamps by topical theme. I don't collect by topic, but might be useful for those that do.

    Nice blog... I have some similar thoughts at times. Will stop in once and again as I think about it.

    As I get closer to 'retirement', I hope to have more time to work with and study the various stamps and countries. Right now, Life is a priority that won't go away!
