CANADA FIRST TO ISSUE A "FOREVER" STAMP?

John Regitko, Executive Secretary of the Canadian Numismatic
Association writes: "With reference to the article in the last
E-Sylum about the U.S. Postal Service's proposed "forever stamp,"
in Canada we already have such a stamp.

A couple of years ago, I purchased a quantity of sheets of stamps
that people usually order with their own designs to show of their
kids or dog, except I used the logo of the Canadian Numismatic
Association. We included a single and block of the stamp in a
Convention registration kit as well as using some for C.N.A.
correspondence.

Since Canada Post increased the price of stamps recently, I
called them and asked if the value is embedded in the stamp.
I was advised that no value is included digitally in the design
and it has the value of the "current" basic domestic rate. I
was also told that it cannot be used for foreign mail by simply
adding the additional amount."
