What is the value when a stamp is issued the first day?


Answer by  Binome (1975)

A stamp's value on the day it's printed is determined by the value it is supposed to represent. A one cent stamp is worth one cent. A 35 cent stamp is worth 35 cents. The only reason the value of a stamp ever goes up is because collectors decide it is more valuable, usually for reasons of rarity.

When a standard run of the mill stamp is issued it is worth face value. If it is a speciality stamp such as the elvis stamps etc. the value is determined by the post office or the issuer. A lot of times the value starts out at double of a normal stamp.

Generally anything that is issued the first day is worth the face value. So a stamp issued the first day would generally be worth however much you have to pay at the post office for an ordinary stamp. This of course does not count to "special" stamps that are made more fo collecting then using.

The first day of issue value is based on the amount printed on its face. A 44 cent stamp is valued at that cost until cancelled by the Post Office.
