They have a value equal to their postage value. They don't have any value to collecting.

I often see mixtures of these types of stamps selling in mixtures on eBay, at maybe 10c - 25c or so apiece. They have some collector value.

ten to 25 cents apiece sound more like they are being sold as discount postage.

I was curious about the slash through the denomination in the OP's images, and then just came across thisL

Slash through the denomination is federal law. Quite a bit behind times, but a law nevertheless.

If you receive a used example on a cover and keep it intact it will have collector value years from now. These are listed in the back of the Specialized Scott catalog for U.S. Stamps.

Crouse27,

These are Zazzle stamps. The only personalized stamps I see in the back of the Specialized Scott catalog are for "Stamps.Com" stamps.

I created a sheet of Zazzle stamps and used them in conjunction with other stamps for the US Coast Guard issue last year. Here is an example:



I don't disagree that these stamps, on cover, may be of some interest some day, but I don't see Scott cataloging the Zazzle productions.

Sorry - I meant 10c - 25c each for used examples.
