i should also say that the rates change, so pre-sorted first class or extra ounce will be different depending on the time issued.

Additional ounce stamps are all 21 cents at this time.

For the older special service stamps, the Scott catalog provides the face values for those stamps. Just find the image of the stamp, and then look at the listing. The face value is noted like this: (10c). Those face values for postal purposes have not changed.

Face values for Forever stamps are noted in the catalog at the face value at the time that the stamps were issued as are semi-postal stamps, although for postal purposes they have a face value at the current first class rate (49 cents until later in January when it goes to 50 cents).

If you have access to Linns archives Sept 23, 2014 had listing for postal values for non denominated stamps (values & Pictures).

James,

you can ask Lars if he still has an old set of Scott catalogues, offered at essentially the cost of postage. they'd be a great reference for you.
