ON FOREVER STAMPS

Philip Mernick writes: "Having just read v9n20 a bit late it
seems to me that the "for ever" stamps are very similar in
concept to the UK first and second class stamps we have had for
many years. They have no stated value and can be used without
augmentation even when the rate goes up. For this reason when
a price hike is announced it is done with very little advance
notice to prevent people stocking up at the old rate! The UK
stamps can also be used to make up any value either by multiples,
combinations of first and second class or with normal stamps
 showing a value."
