Can I still use 41 cent stamps?
Short answer: no, they never expire, even though postage rates are increasing in 2020! They are valid forever as long as they can be validated as legitimate postage. This means if you put an old stamp that looks stained and ratty on a letter with tape, it will likely be rejected.
Can I use old 42 cent stamps?
The answer is simple—use them! The value of the stamp will always be the value indicated on the stamp. All you need to do is purchase additional value stamps (likely 2-cent stamps) and use both on your envelope.

How do I know if my stamps are still good?
If you look closely at any currently issued first-class stamp, you’ll see the words “Forever” printed on one side but no dollar value.
