In 2004 Stamps.com, the Santa Monica company that began offering people the opportunity to put pictures of themselves ...on postage stamps. One month later the company changed the policy, allowing only images of babies, preteens, pets, landscapes, wildlife, vehicles, and graphics representing businesses or charities. The reason for the change in policy was the rogue galley of killers, mob leaders, gangsters and dictators making the way on to United States Mail. Some of the stamps confirmed released in that month were of Unabomber Ted Kaczynski, former Teamsters boss Jimmy Hoffa, Romanian dictator Nicola Ceausescu, Communist spies Julius and Ethel Rosenberg and ousted Yugoslav President Slobodan Milosevic and even the dress former White House intern Monica Lewinsky made famous.
In 2004 I told Charles Manson of this story of the stamps, he said I should have got in on that deal before it ended. I thought about it a little, on how I could accomplish a stamp they didn't allow anymore and not only that but to have it postmarked.
2006, twenty five pre paid pre stamped on the postcards were purchased and then the 0 cent stamp added at a printing press one night, sent, signed by Manson, prison stamped and postmarked. Out of the 25 postcards made, I was able to get only 5 of them back through the mail and still have them all. The rarest stamps of the stamps being that Stamps .com issued 100 each of all the others, this Manson one I know of 5.
