What Is Face Value?


(In this example it is $0.33)

Face Value is the postage value of your stamps. In other words, it's how much value you could use it to send mail.

Postage stamps never expire. All U.S. stamps issued after 1935 are essentially worth face value, and people still use them today to mail letters. All you have to do is put enough of them on an envelope or package to make the current mail rate.
