Did you know that most of the stamps made today have no value attached to them and are therefore not very well received by Philatelic's. Only a stamp with a value on it like $1, or $5 or R10 can have any value in the stamp collectors world. Do you collect stamps? Have you noticed that the peel/stick local stamps have no value on them?

that would be my interest as well = So I bought the whole sheet. Not to post but to keep.

@Inlemay I always pondered starting an actual collection, for the looks. I mostly now just grab one now and then

@Jessicalynnt sometimes collections are just dust collectors - so rather just enjoy - I might use these locally

I have noticed that, they're called Forever stamps here. I didn't know they didn't have a value to stamp collectors but it makes sense as there isn't a value on them.

@Inlemay I haven't seen any ROUND ones. Are they new?

this is the one I am talking about - most of my post from the USA have these stamps at the moment.

I hadn't realised that the stamp collectors didn't want today's stamps. I'd assumed that our stamps didn't have a value on them because they keep increasing the price. It's easier to just have 1st and 2nd class stamps.

its not that they dont want them, if there is no value attached - then there is no value to get. Its sad in a way.

No I've never collected stamps, it the UK you can buy a book of first class or second class stamps they don't have the price on unlike if you were to buy a first first class stamp.

the stamps in my post are local stamps - so they are only used for local postage - they cost 0,5$ but dont show the value of the stamps

I didn't know this. I have lots of stamps that are very old. One day I need to work out if they are valuable or not.
