1981 Christmas Stamp - 20 Cent Teddy Bear on SleighThis is an interesting stamp because nowhere on the stamp does it say how much postage it handles! You had to guess or know that it was a 20 cent stamp. Very odd! Apparently when they were printing this they weren't sure if the prices were going to go up or not, so they hedged their bets :)
This teddy bear stamp has a tan background, with the white title Season's Greetings across the top, and USA 1981 on the left. The design looks like a paper-cut-out piece fo art work with an articulated yellow teddy bear, with a red bow around his neck, sitting on a medium brown sleigh. The teddy bear has a white package in front of him, and there's a key in his back.
The design was made by Naiad Einsel from Westport, Connecticut.
This is the Scott Catalogue #1940 Stamp.
This stamp is reasonably common, and a used stamp is worth about 30 cents.

Because I have many copies of many of my stamps, feel free to contact me if you have an interest or swapping or buying one of these. I am quite happy to share my love of stamping with others!
