The Postage

I like it when the U.S. Postal Service makes a friendly shout-out to other countries when they are celebrating their independence.  It's cordial.

The "hobbizine" online stamp catalog lists this 1967 issue as being worth 20 cents in good used condition.  This is a stamp collector's way of saying "it's worthless, but it would be a nice gesture to give it to a kid who was just starting a stamp collection."  It is listed as being worth 35 cents in mint unused condition, which is how stamp collectors say "it's still worth 5 cents, if you put it on a letter."
