is there a philatelist in the house? or a Postal worker?

2 posts / 0 new

this is something i guess a philatelist or a postal worker would know; but I was just paying bills, and peeled-off a "forever" postage stamp from a 20-stamp package. I noticed the front of the little fold-over package has a great big stamp, looks like a bigger version of the stamp; it even peels off like the actual stamps. Naturally, I thought to myself: "Can you use these for stamps? Have I been throwing away perfectly good stamps all this time? At least the big stamps outta work on packages, right?

I figure I'll ask the post office person next time I go, but in case I forget, do any of ya'll happen to know?
I know its a sticky subject. You have to adhere to many rules... It just takes stick-to-it-ive-ness... thanx!
