Given Forever have been around a long time, I do not use low demonization stamps any more. The fruit series is reasonable attractive.

I prefer the American Design series over the fruits even though they're on their way out. I like how colorful they are although the subjects are a bit underwhelming.

I send a lot of international postcards through Postcrossing, so I use a lot of 10 cent stamps. I can't wait for the new 4 cent stamp early next year so I can cut down the number of stamps per postcard to four (58 + 58 + 10 + 4 = $1.30) although I could also get to this with three postcard stamps and a 10 cent

I'm guessing that the 1c and 10c stamps would be highest in demand, since there still vast quantities of the 1940s-60s 3c to 5c stamps out there.

I just use whatever stamps I have in my postage pile. I never seem to know what is current anymore.

Of the fruit low denominations, I like best the ! cent apple, 3 cent strawberry and 5 cent grapes. Of the American Craftsman the 5 cent Towelware and 3 cent Silver teapot are my favorite.

The fruit series is a little strange as for the 10, 5 and 4 cents they have panes of 20 but no panes for the 3, 2 and 1 cent, only coils. So if you want to end up with 1,000 or more of each denomination the best way toget them is on the secondary market through eBay. I have gotten some nice strips that way.

The low value fruits seem to show up on charity solicitations.

I'd have liked the series better had the number of fruits depicted matched the value: 1 apple, 2 lemons, 3 strawberries, etc. The 1c 5c and 10c are the most useful for me. For 1c to 10c, I'd have preferred depictions of something more historically meaningful, for example, the Bill of Rights.
