of every year, the United States Postal Service announces a new stamp or series internally. But you’ll have to wait until the year 2000 to find out what will follow the Malcolm X stamp. For general advice, check out the USA Philatelic: The Official Source for Stamp Enthusiasts. The guide is printed three times a year by the United States Postal Service and is another good source of information for consumers interested in stamps.
Consumers can order the current stamp from the Black Heritage series or any other series by calling 800-STAMP-24. For telephone orders, there is a $3 shipping and handling charge that is added to the price of the stamp. A framed collector’s edition of the first 20 Black Heritage stamps to be issued is also available for $125 plus $1 shipping and handling. To obtain stamps issued more than a year ago, contact a stamp dealer in your area.
