I would assume the various states will also begin to increase the price of its duck stamps. Louisiana started issuing its beautiful waterfowl stamps in June 1989 @ $5.00 each for residents, increase to $5.50 in 1998 where it has remained. Below is the art work of the 2015-16 duck stamp to be issued in Louisiana.



"Bluewings Over Cypress Creek" This is the artist, Guy Crittenden's first winning Duck Stamp in Louisiana. He featured the beautiful feathering of the Blue-winged Teal drake against a background that repeated some of the colors in the bird itself. Blues, golds, rusty reds, and purples. Mr. Crittenden's entry was a unanimous selection by a panel of five judges and will become the 2015-16 Louisiana Waterfowl Stamp.

I believe the U.S. Department of the Interior is not being fair to us collectors by issuing the 2018-19 $100 85th Anniversary Commemorative Migratory Bird Hunting and Conservation souvenir sheet of 4 stamps. They seem to try to justify the cost by including a block of 4 $25 stamps. An anniversary is supposed to be something to celebrate, not leaving their loyal customers with a bad feeling or unable to afford. They are issuing 12,600 sheets. Why so many when they know they will sell less than 3000? In the past, we collectors buy(donate) $25 for WAG, $25 for PSA and many $35 for silk FDC, now on top of that they are adding $100. The $50 price of the 75th anniversary was fair and a nice-looking product, this one looks just like a money grabbing product and not worthy of its long tradition. And why issue an 85th year? In the past they issued a 25th, a 50th and a 75th which are normal milestones.

acanalizo, look on the bright side. With no more WAG ducks, in the future most collectors will probably only need to buy one duck stamp. While it's true that the 2018 SS may make this a rather expensive year for some collectors, I take the long view ... only 1 duck each year instead of 2 will eventually help my budget. Moreover, if a collector with deep pockets normally collects duck plate blocks, he can substitute the SS for the 2018 plate block ... because the SS has a plate number as well.
But in the main, I agree that issuing a SS on the 85th anniversary makes little sense ... so it's probably a money grab. On the other hand, if the USPS starts issuing a duck SS every year, then there's little doubt about their intentions.

Not really. Many of us will still need to purchase one single PSA stamp from the pane of 20 to be complete- just as we purchased that single WAG. Don't know if Scott will list the single yet, nor if they don't, will they later change their mind. Either way, it will be a different stamp-surely the backing will be different. The 2008 75th anniversary was nicely done - Scott choose not to give it a number, just a note. They did not even include it in their annual National supplement.

The Dept. of Interior also made a mistake with issuing this 85th Anniversary product this year in 2018. The 85th anniversary is 2019. 2018 minus 1934 = 84, not 85. They made same mistake with the 75th Anniversary product issued in 2008 (2008-1934= 74) however they did get RW51 50th Anniversary issued in 1984 right (1984-1934=50) and choose not to issue a 25th Anniversary in 1959 . Congress passed the Migratory Bird Hunting Stamp Act and on March 16th 1934 Pres. Roosevelt signed it into law. Maybe that's why this 85th anniversary is so expensive -it's a "major error"

Just to comment about the stamps, I collect these every year and do not hunt anymore so I am contributing to the wetland purchase. What a lot of people miss is the amount of wildlife that benefits from these purchases beside ducks and geese, also there is a lot of revenue generated by hunting. I hope the duck stamps continue and I also like the state stamps.

The stamps also pay for the annual admission to Wildlife Refuges. This almost certainly accounts for the change in inscription that occurred in 1977. From that date onward they added "and Conservation Stamp."

Louisiana issued 4 WILD LIFE stamps for admission to State wildlife Refuges and stopped issuing in 1999, then issued paper permits to save money SHAME .

I further don't understand why the US Fish & Wildlife Service is issuing
2 different cachet envelopes for the 2018-19 Mallard Duck stamp? Why not just one? It is bad enough they issued a costly $100 85th Anniversary Sheetlet, now an added $35 additional cachet besides the regular $35 silk cachet?

Is anyone who collects ducks having trouble ordering a single of the new 2018-2019 stamp? When I go on the USPS website, it has the sheet of 20 automatically checked off and I can't get it unchecked to just order one stamp, which it does show available for $25. Is there another way to get this stamp? Thank you in advance.

Yes, one must call Stamp Fulfillment Services directly at
800-782-6724 to order single. USPS item No. 336001 (single stamp)

I was surprise Scott has assigned a number to the 85th Anniversary issue of 4- RW85b when they refused to issue a Scott number to the 75th Anniversary issue, but just makes a note about it below the listing.
Again, why an 85th Anniversary when, in the past, it was every 25 years. This 85th Anniversary of 4 is a completely not necessary, expensive,
and not artful at all other than the stamp itself. There was no thought of collectors They printed 12,600? I will be surprised if they sold 2,000.
