Unused vintage Rural Electrification Administration postage stamps from 1985 - face value is 22¢ each.


This issue celebrates the 50th anniversary of the Rural Electrification Administration (REA), which was created in 1935 by President Franklin D. Roosevelt. At that time, only one farm in ten had electricity. Since 1935, the REA has approved over $60 billion in loans to assist millions with electrical and telephone service.

You will receive 25 total stamps all in mint condition. Perfect for wedding envelopes, postcards, birthday invitations or other occasions! They also look great for scrapbooking, decoupage and other craft projects!

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

All stamps are guaranteed authentic, unused, and ready for your envelopes!

Please note that stamps are separated into blocks/panes/singles to fit our rigid envelopes and keep shipping cost low. If you would like to receive your stamps as a full sheet, just message us through our Contact Form and we can arrange that for you.

Because these stamps are of a smaller denomination than the current postage rate, they can be used together or in conjunction with other vintage stamps to mail wedding invitations, party invitations, or just regular old snail mail!
