December 16, 1773
Anyone interested in a repeat performance?
I know you aren't looking at the stamps but tear your eyes for a moment and then ponder the reality of an EIGHT CENT stamp from 1973. Then look lower. No, not her curves, the stamp price curve even further down.
This is an historical graph of stamp prices. Just in case you forgot 1971 is when Nixon stopped convertibility of the dollar to gold.
Anybody ready to toss some tea yet?
This is a repost from 2007. And yes, the price of a first class stamp has continued on that slope.
