1995 G Rate Series
Set of 18
 
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 stamps 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, the stamps feature a flying dove with an olive branch in its beak. They were produced by the American Bank Note Company (#2877) and Stamp Venturers (#2878).
 
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.
 
The Official Mail stamp was used for government mail. A warning against private use is printed on the stamp.
