I was buying some stamps yesterday -- not from a dealer, from the post office -- and noticed some 55 stamps for sale. Was I seeing things, or is there a purpose for these?

Yes there's a rate increase, but why would the USPS be issuing denominated 55-cent stamps along with Forever stamps? Unless these are an old issue...

They are not denominated. They are 55 cent Forever stamps.

The USPS should not be charging 55 cents until January 28th, since the 27th is a Sunday.
