lol. You still buy stamps? I would not waste my time at all.
I’m sure you’ll meet Ronnie’s little liberal boy, Ron jr at the post office with the same enthusiasm (sarc/)
That is so beautiful!
Dutch’s face cut a fine figure because his spirit shone from within.
A man of character whose character defined him and his times.
We shan’t see his type again for a long, long time.
Not a fan of Reagan?
Why is the 44 crossed out?
RR doesn’t like BO?
It’s a forever stamp so whatever the rates go to you’ll be covered. I know some people collect like Elvis Presley, Marilyn Monroe, Bob Hope, etc. I don’t know how long they will be sold or if this is a 1 day deal, wouldn’t think it’s just for 1 day but wanted to let FREEPERS know.
In my opinion, his image should be carved on Mt. Rushmore- if that is possible.
If you don’t like President Reagan name another President in the last Century you did like.
44 cents. Crossed out to prevent counterfeiting from the image, I presume.
Not a fan of stamps or government run businesses. Of course you have every right to support the big government. I don’t expect you to be a conservative but on this site I want you to be.

Thank you for letting us know!
No, just not a fan of snail mail.
As for me, I can’t remember the last time I used a stamp.
I am sure you meant to comment to the other dude?
If not click on my name..
lol. Come on seriously. Because he doesn’t want to buy a stamp it is a slight on Reagan. Some of you are WORSE than liberals.
Yes, I will buy them and use them to send letters to my more Liberal family members.
Haaa haa ha ha haaaaaaaaaaa!!!!!
I agree, but I am not willing to give up recognizing the special events of family members and friends. No Hallmark fan, I make all my own greetings, often not traditional cards, but have to get them all over the country!

Do I have your permission to be a conservative? Please, please, allow mew to be a conservative.
So do you use public roads, or public utilities? The government is useful for somethings among them infrastructure.
Mt Rushmore should remain Mt Rushmore...
Just dont use the RR stamps to mail your taxes ... Youll be setting yourself up like a bowling pin for an audit!
Just today I was hearing public roads exist because the postal service which is authorized by the Constitution and created justification to make the roads. Ike apparently thought that too small a fig leaf or the highway system so it was created under the guise of "national security."
Looks ok although the hand on chin is an odd pose. The background could pass for CA. While I send very few pieces of mail, I’m nearly out of stamps. Still in all, I’m not a fan of “commemorative” stamps and will probably pass on these.
He said in his post he was not a fan of Reagan, that’s what my question was about. I didn’t say anything about FREEPERS had to buy stamps.
I think that you are probably correct about that. And I really doubt that it’s possible anyway.
So the problem is that the stamp is put out by the government? Consider thhat the government of our country, in today’s world, is honoring Ronald Reagan. That seems remarkable to me. I’m pleased.
But I don’t use the post office. Not because I object to it, but because I am an email fiend. I do all my communication via electronic means. When I MUST send something, I tend to use DHL.
But I like the stamp.
I can just see some Far Left wacko licking his lips as he licks the stamp knowing conservatives will get the blame.
...causing pain / suffering injury to IRS Workers?
I will buy these - and USE them!
Some people still send letters and what an excellent way to remind people of contrast.
Like someone said earlier, it's a simplistic anti-counterfeiting measure.
The image I just saw has a 44 on it, so that’s not a forever stamp. Too bad. If it’s a 44 it will be outmoded the next time they raise the first class postage rates.
They said previously it will be forever. “Reagan forever”
That’s why the 44 is crossed out
I saved a couple of the ones from a few years ago. I’ll do the same this time.
I wish they would make them universal stamps: I’d buy a brick.
Others have commented: The USPS routinely crosses out the 44 or whatever the number is, when depicting stamp designs in the media. It looks like this is a 44 cent stamp. (No matter; I would keep using it in case of an increase, with makeup stamps added.)
There was a story about this a few weeks ago & the postal service said it would be forever
I have some Richard Nixons. :)
