Hi.

I'm a Brooklyn Newbie to this site despite having resided in Anglia (as a civilian) since 1971. I initially landed here in the Air Force.

My immediate problem is buying a first-class US postage stamp for a size C5 self-addressed envelope that will contain only one sheet of paper. Can I buy one from somebody via PayPal please?  I will also pay your postage to me.

Welcome to the forum!  :)

I thought I would have a stamp but I can't find one. I did google though and the suggestion was to check on Ebay which I did and you'll be able to get them there if you don't manage to get the single one you want.

I will happily send you a US postage stamp - pm me your mailing address.

However, just something to check out, in the USA you can buy stamps by mail. usps.com  not sure if they'll ship overseas....

Thanks for your offer. The stamp will need to be sufficient for a C4 envelope by air mail. When it's ultimately returned to me weight will not be an issue.  I can reimburse you in £.  Please send it to:

OK, Address  Removed

I looked at USPS they want to know "my inside leg measurement" which is to much detail as they are the government.

@Square Pin, you should edit out your address for safety. I've copied it and will PM to @Nan D. in case you don't have enough posts to do that yet.

I'm still groping my way around this forum. I was rather naive.

OK address gone.  If there was any malevolent intent that opportunity is now gone.

I've got the address. You just need a USPS 1st class mail stamp, right?

If this stamp is going to go on something that will need to get to you in the UK, you'll want an international stamp. I have some of those here, that I don't see using again, so let me know and I'll send one if that's what you need.

Great!  Thats exactly what I need for my C4 self addressed pre-stamped envelope. Be sure to include your return address so I can reimburse you.

Ok, so I've looked at the USPS website and I don't think you need a standard International stamp, but may actually need two of them - IF your envelope is going to be not over one ounce. I believe the UK is in the 3-5 zone price range.  If your envelope will be less than one ounce, that's the equivalent of two international letter "forever" stamps.  I can send you those. If it's going to be more than an ounce but less than 2, you'll need three stamps. I have three stamps available - but one will need to go on the envelope to get the other two to you. 

If you want the two I will send them, but I'm not sure it's going to cover the cost for a C4 envelope (as I don't know what one weighs). I don't know if they'd deliver it postage-due or return it to the sender if the postage is inadequate.  Let me know if you still want me to pop the two I can send into the mail.

A standard sized envelope, international first-class mail stamp is $1.45 for under one ounce to zones 3-5

As far as I am aware my return letter will contaain only two sheets of paper so I think two stamps should do it
