Add some vintage charm to your letters and greeting cards with vintage unused postage.

This beautiful lot of brightly colored stamps includes:

(5) 1983 Hot Air Ballooning - 20 cent stamps (2 assorted styles, see last photo.)
(5) 1984 Pole Vaulter Summer Olympics - 13 cent stamps
(5) 1978 Photography - 15 cent stamps

Simply use one of each stamp on each of your standard 1 oz letter or greeting card envelopes to fulfill the current USPS first class mail rate of 45 cents. (Because of the odd stamp values, the actual postage on each envelope will be 48 cents.)

With this listing, you will receive 15 stamps total, enough stamps to post 5 letters.

Please make sure you have reviewed my shop policies section before placing your order.

All stamps in my shop are in very good useable vintage condition. Depending on age, some of the gum (adhesive) may not be as strong as when the stamps were produced. Some older stamps (particularly those used in my grab bag listings) may have small tape remnants on the back - as they were once part of a stamp collector's album. Because of this, I recommend attaching the stamps to your envelopes with glue rather than licking them or moistening with a sponge. I've found that Elmer's Extra Strength glue stick works very well.
