1 oz. PACKETs

(examples shown -- your stamps will be different)

Each packet contains $7.30 face value (FV), enough for TEN, one-ounce mailings. Packets contain clean, fully gummed (or self-adhesive) stamps and sell for $6.35 or less. Each packet is clearly marked to show the stamp denominations and required combination to achieve 73¢. These older stamps are great for dressing up your mail. So, why not add distinction to your mail ... while saving money at the same time!

Special topics such as Nature, Space, Americana, Birds, Flowers, Environment, Black History, Christmas, or Business appropriate...may be specified to personalize your mail.
Want to go CRAZY with your mail? If you typically use #9 (or larger) envelopes, you can save even more! Request “PKT4” or “PKT5” packets which require four or five stamps, respectively, for each envelope.

A Friendly Warning to Philatelists:
Most of these stamps are not philatelic quality. Some are off-center, and some may have very minor damage which makes them UNACCEPTABLE for stamp collecting. (BTW, the gum side of older stamps is ALWAYS checked on every stamp. I positively will not sell stamps that I wouldn't lick!) Although some of our discounted stamps may be appropriate for collecting, please don't break up these packets. Instead, order high-quality, collectible stamps from EagleStamps.com at the lowest prices on the Internet. Use these colorful discount postage stamps only to add distinction to your outgoing mail or for paying those pesky bills!

Where do these discount stamps come from?
I spend $1000s for stamp collections and accumulations each year. Quite frankly, I am often amazed at the off-center, low quality stamps some "collectors" will save! I could never, in good conscience, resell them to my philatelic customers. So I use them as postage. However, I have far too many to use up. So I offer them at a discount. Frequently, I pay only 90% of face for large, modern accumulations and so I'm almost breaking even.   (P.S.   If you are buying new stamps at the post office to put away for future enjoyment...please, please be fussy about the condition and centering of those stamps! Attractive, well-centered stamps increase in value. But poorly-centered stamps never do.)

Counterfeit Stamps?
U.S. postage stamps are being sold on eBay (and elsewhere) at below face value by the hundreds of thousands every day. However, when you see multiple panes or coils (x10, x20, x100) of the same stamp, you should be wary. Sadly, many of these stamps are counterfeit stamps coming in from China, Taiwan, or California. Many of these fake stamps are quite well done and are difficult to tell from the real thing. A partial list of 'forever' stamps being faked at this time: Spiral Stars (2016), Skywriting Love (2017) and Freedom Flag (2023). Apparently, the USPS is not interested in prosecuting these counterfeiters (probably because postal inspectors under-estimate the extent of the problem), and internet outlet sites are very happily aiding these criminals by turning a blind eye to their crimes (while taking their illegal share of profits from each sale).
But there is one thing you can trust...
