Here are the top ten articles for the Stamps Site! These rankings are live and get reset at the beginning of each month, so check back often to see what your fellow visitors are most interested in!

1. Mail Service Slowdown Coming
While this post may be a bit off topic, I believe it is important none the less. The Postal Service has given a tentative estimate of how closing 82 mail-processing plants will slow mail delivery in the future. The Postal Service claims to be able to preserve overnight mail delivery at about 66 perc

2. Big Mailers Get Big Discounts
On Aug. 15, 2014 the Postal Regulatory Commission approved new rates for Priority Mail shipments by high-volume mailers. The Postal Service claimed that the discounts would be about 2.3 percent lower. However an analysis by a consulting firm suggests that the postage rate discounts could dramaticall

3. Circus Sheet Stamps Controversy
The USPS is issuing a set of stamps to commemorate the Circus. The problem is that you can only get this souvenir set by purchasing the “2014 Stamp Yearbook” from the Postal Service. The Circus three-stamp set is only available in this collection.

Ever wonder how, before stamps and postal services, mail was delivered?

8. Reward For Stolen Inverted Jenny Stamps
Perhaps you watched the former Television show “Cold Case” in years past. The detectives in the show would revisit cold cases and successfully solve them within the hour of the show. This article is about a forgotten “cold case” involving two stolen Inverted Jenny stamps from a bygone year.

9. $2 Inverted Jenny Sales Figures
Here are some of the details on the new Jenny Invert stamp sales. The United States Postal service sold 112,605 panes of six $2 Jenny Invert self-adhesive stamps during the first 30 days of issue.

10. Semipostal Stamps
Semipostal stamps represent an unusual type of stamp. A semipostal stamp offers the option of contributing additional money to a charity or cause when purchasing the stamp. The name is quit fitting in that a “semipostal,” only part of the purchase price of the stamp pays for postage, the rest is don
