Unused vintage Ameripex '86 postage stamps from 1985 - face value is 22¢ each.


America’s eighth International Philatelic Exhibition opened to the public on May 22, 1986, in Chicago, Illinois. It was also the first to be held in the Mid-West. Ameripex 86 was the largest philatelic exhibition ever held in North America. Over 150,000 people visited the exhibition, and over 50 countries participated.


To mark the exhibition, the USPS began work on several new stamps. Among them was a single stamp issued a year before the show’s start. It’s stamp-on-stamp design pictured a portion of a 1¢ Benjamin Franklin from a century earlier.

Quantity: 25
Face Value: 22 cents each
Year of Issue: 1985
