Semipostal Stamps

The U.S. was a latecomer to the concept of issuing semipostal stamps. Sales of these stamps have raised millions for their designated charities. The Breast Cancer Awareness stamp is by far the most popular, requiring several reprintings by various printers since it was first issued in 1998.

 

Scott B1, (32 + 8¢) Breast Cancer Awareness, 1998 date, plate number V111111, Type I

The stamp was later reprinted with a bar code in the selvage for some positions.
