The third edition (released in December 2015) of the specialized catalog “USA: Variable Denomination Stamps (1989-2015)” is in color, written in English, lists all US variable denomination stamps printed by automats (CVP or ATM) or computers (Internet postage stamps) and provides a wealth of information for each issue. Like traditional stamps, variable denomination stamps can be used anywhere and anytime. The 500 page US letter-sized catalog has about 1000 images depicting about 3,000 scans/photos. It lists prices for most of the ca. 300 main catalog numbers. Compared to the previous English edition (July 2013), the size of this edition increased by about 50% and several new chapters [Information-based Indicia (IBI) Postage and Barcodes; Illegal Variable Denomination Stamps; Online Postage Vendors; Internet Postage Stamp Test Sheets Supplied by PC Postage Providers; Commercial Base Pricing, Parcel Select and Metered Mail Discount] were added reflecting the growing importance of variable denomination stamps in US postal automation and therefore US philately. Furthermore, all additional new issues (Wincor-IBM; NetStamps; Photo NetStamps; DYMO Stamps and Printable Postage; pbSmartPostage; Prepaid Forever Priority Packaging) from July 2013 until December 2015 as well as recently discovered older issues were included. Besides the normal stamps (incl. all known paper and imprint types), errors, freaks, oddities, test prints, receipts and official first day post marks are shown for most issues. Also, information (text and images) on older issues has been added or revised. A glossary and an identification guide for US variable denomination stamps were added for ease of use. Finally, an overview of all types of US online postage, which includes online meter postage and Customized Postage issued since 1998, is given.
