This postcard from the US Postal Services depicts their Billie Holiday stamp, issued in 1994 as part of a series of stamps called “Legends of American Music, Volume Two”. The first-class domestic letter rate from 1991-1994 was 29 cents; it would go up to 32 cents on January 1, 1995, giving this stamp a particularly short shelf-life.
Don’t forget that rates are going up across the board on January 22. Domestic postcard rates have been 29 cents since last April; they’ll be going up to 32 cents. Domestic letters increase from 44 cents to 45 cents, but if you have “Forever” stamps, they’ll work forever, no matter what you originally paid for them.
