It says "to *again* make these stamps available", which implies an earlier period of availability, however I don't have the time this evening to chase it down.


Here is a philatelic order sheet from 1960 with the 1959 due series available as well as the 50 cent red from the 1930 due issue:

Does any postal service still collect postage dues on underpaid mail? Or have all stopped this practice as it became not cost-effective.

Postage due is still collected here, but not by the postman. I think the norm is to collect the item from the sorting office and pay there.

Did you mean, "...still use postage due stamps when collecting postage dues on underpaid mail?"

I cannot answer for all of the current countries of the world, but, use 'em if you got 'em seems likely.

Unlike, GeoffHa, here in the USA I must pay my postal person postage due when the mail is handed to me. Now that postage due may have been assessed anywhere along the mail stream, including the postmaster at my office who seem quite adept at catching those eBay sellers who underpay postage. When I pay, either in money or stamps, stamps are affixed and date cancelled.
