Arago: 32-cent U.S. Addresses Only

Up
32-cent U.S. Addresses Only

The G-rate Old Glory "For U.S. Addresses Only" first-class rate stamp was issued on December 13, 1994, to pay the new first-class domestic mail rate of thirty-two cents. The rate change took place on January 1, 1995. Though the stamps indicated "For U.S. Addresses Only," by the time the rate change took effect, they could have been used to pay international mail rates as well.

The G-rate Old Glory "For U.S. Addresses Only" first-class rate stamp was the only G-rate stamp issued with an entirely white background. Five different entities produced G-rate stamps for the Postal Service, and it is the only stamp to have at least one version printed by each of the five.

The Bureau of Engraving and Printing produced this stamp with a black "G" in a sheet format (Scott #2881), a booklet format (Scott #2883), and a horizontal coil format (Scott #2889).

The American Bank Note Company produced this stamp with a blue "G" in a booklet format (Scott #2884) and in a sheet format (Scott #2890).

Stamp Ventures produced this stamp with a red "G" in a sheet format (Scott #2882) and in two different coil formats (Scott #2891-92).

KCS Industries produced this stamp with a red "G" in a booklet format (Scott #2885).

Avery Dennison produced two booklet format versions of this stamp, one with light blue shading dots in the white of the flag (Scott #2886), and the second version has considerably more blue shading in the white stripes of the flag (Scott #2887).
