U.S. 2877-93
1994 G Rate Series
Set of 17
 
Issue Date: December 13, 1994
City: Washington, D.C.

This offer includes 17 stamps that were issued when a postal rate change was scheduled to take effect on January 1, 1995. The United States Postal Service started selling the G rate stamps on December 13, 1994. This series was produced by more printers and in formats than any previous rate change stamps.
 
The 3¢ dove stamp made up the difference between the old first-class rate of 29 cents and the new first-class rate of 32 cents. Due to criticism the 1991 make-up rate stamp received for its unattractive design, this stamp features a flying dove with an olive branch in its beak. These stamps were produced by the American Bank Note Company and Stamp Venturers. The dove on the Stamp Venturers’ stamp (#2878) is dark blue and the type is thicker.
 
The Old Glory stamps were produced by the Bureau of Engraving and Printing, American Bank Note Company, Stamp Venturers, and Avery-Denison. They were available in sheet, coil, booklet, and self-adhesive booklet for vending machines. The yellow stamps covered the 20¢ postcard rate, the stamps with blue background were used on presorted first-class mail, and the nonprofit presorted stamps had a green background. All the Old Glory stamps with white backgrounds covered the new 32¢ postage rate.
