    the price should be on them. whatever price it says it what it is worth.

    if no price, look for "FOREVER" on them. those last forever and don't devalue with age.

    Dates mean nothing. They indicate the year of issue and nothing more (unless there are two dates that indicate the stamp is commemorating something, such as person's life years).

    Values on stamps mean everything. They are always good for the value shown on them.

    There should be a value, in cents, on the stamps. If there is no value stated, then the stamp will say 'Forever' somewhere on it. Forever stamps are good for a one ounce letter, as the name implies, forever. It doesn't matter that you paid 45 cents for it and postage is now 55 cents. Denominated stamps are only good for the amount shown on them.

    Stamps have a monetary value. If the stamp says "FOREVER" on it, it will be accepted as first class postage both now and in the future. If it doesn't say that, look for a value written in cents. The current price of first class stamps is 55¢.

    A forever stamp is good forever for basic first class postage (1 ounce). A date is usually only on commemorative stamps. It has no other meaning.

    Even if not a forever stamp the postage amount is always good. You would just have to add a few cents in stamps to bring it to the current postage (55 cents).

    If it's a Forever® Stamp, then yes.
