Euro Zone - pre Euro era stamps valid for postage? by Blair (TC)
Greetings friends: I know that France still accepts stamps denominated in Francs and Centimes to pay for postage. Does this also apply in all or in specific Euro Zone countries? In such cases, is there an expiry date for using such stamps? Thank You for any assistance.
