According to de Vries, who also moderates The Virtual Stamp Club (, the first new stamps will be issued Jan. 10 and will be an eight-stamp joint issue with Britain featuring animals from children's books.

De Vries also says the USPS is expected to issue this month two stamps without prices marked on them, each worth 39 cents.

"One shows the Statue of Liberty and the U.S. flag, the other, two lovebirds. Both probably will be reissued early next year with '39c' on them."
