Sheets The number of stamps to a sheet varies, depending upon the size of the stamps. Sheets of ordinary postage stamps and postage-due stamps consist of 100 stamps per sheet.  Stamps such as commemorative stamps and certain other various denominations usually consist of 50  stamps  per  sheet  or  other  amounts  per  sheet  as announced in the Postal Bulletin. Books Books  of  stamps  are  sold  for  protection  and convenience.    The  stamps  are  self-adhesive  and  are protected to prevent the stamps from sticking together. When ordering books of stamps, refer to Module R of the DMM for current available denominations. Coils Stamps are issued in coils for use by customers who  find  this  method  more  convenient  to  use  than loose stamps, sheets, or books of stamps.  MPOs stock 100-stamp coils.  Postage at the First-Class letter rate, stamped card rate, and ordinary postage in several of the lower denominations are available in coils.  Stock only those denominations in coils that your customers request.  Also, never open coils because they must be sold intact for the total stamp value.  Stamp dispensers to hold coils of 100 stamps may be purchased by postal customers from MPOs. KINDS OF STAMPS The  Postal  Operations  Manual  (POM)  divides postal adhesive-backed stamps into three basic types, according to the purpose for which they are intended. The types are as follows:    Regular (Definitive) stamps    Commemorative stamps    Special stamps Some information on each of these stamps appears below, including the purpose and forms of issue. Regular Stamps The largest quantity of stamps in your fixed credit account will be in regular stamps.  Regular stamps are issued  in  denominations  ranging  from  $.01  to  $5. There is also an Express Mail stamp that currently is in the   denomination   of   $11.75. Only   overseas shorebased  post  offices  stock  Express  Mail  stamps. You  will  not  need  all  the  different  denominations available and should only stock those denominations that fit the needs of your postal customers.  However, you  should  keep  a  varied  amount  of  higher  value stamps on hand for parcels that you accept for mailing. Regular   stamps   may   be   used   to   pay   for registration, certified mail, insurance fees, and special handling.   In  fact,  they  may  be  used  for  any  mailing charge.   They  should  be  kept  in  constant  supply  for ordinary postal needs. Commemorative Stamps Commemorative stamps are issued in observance of  historical  events,  to  honor  noted  persons,  and  to emphasize  topics  of  national  importance  or  interest. Each issue is printed in limited quantities to be sold for a limited period of time.   Commemorative stamps do not replace regular stamps but are sold upon request, when available. New commemorative stamp issues are announced by notices in the Postal Bulletin.  These notices should be displayed in post office lobbies for customers to see. Each MPO should have commemoratives on hand. Special Stamps Special  stamps  supplement  each  year’s  regular issue.   They  include  the  Love  and  Holiday  stamps. Each year the USPS announces by notices in the Postal Bulletin  the  availability  and  sale  dates  of  holiday stamps.  MPOs should order these stamps early. Q8-1.     Uncanceled  United  States  postage  stamps may be used for postage if they were printed after what year? Q8-2. Postage stamps of foreign countries may not be  used  as  postage  for  U.S.  domestic  mail. (True/False) Q8-3. List  the  four  different  forms  of  adhesive postage stamps available for purchase. Q8-4. What  is  the  maximum  number  of  regular postage stamps that make up a sheet? Q8-5. What is the purpose of selling postage stamps in book form? Q8-6. How many postage stamps make up a coil? Q8-7. Postal Clerks should not open coils because they should be sold intact for the total stamp value.  (True/False) 8-2
