Not a stamp guy?

Can both the .39 and .51 be used as postage in the USA? Or just the .39

    No, you can't use Canada postage in the US (the 51 cent ones). .

    If you have a ton of these, sell the Canadian stamps as discount postage to people mailing from Canada.

    Thanks JBK do you think 13 sheets is enough to sell at a discount?

    If you sell just the Canadian that is $13 Canadian worth of stamps. If you keep shipping low (really only costs you 55 cents, or 1.15 if a Canadian buyer) then yes it is worth it for someone if the discount is big enough. (50% or slightly more).

    Or you can also try selling intact.

    You don't have enough of a quantity to make trying to sell to a Canadian worthwhile. If you don't want to keep them intact just use up the US stamps and put the Canadian ones into your junk box of foreign stamps.

    All glory is fleeting.

    Small amounts of Canadian, if priced right, are if use to people who want to prepay a return envelope sent to someone in Canada (autograph collectors, for example).

    I gave at times scored ebay looking for exactly this sort of lot.
