Just checked the USPS website to see if the 18/19 fed stamp was out yet and found this...

...although the stamp clearly says $25 on it they're asking $35 for it on the USPS website.   Is this a #1- mistake/typo  #2- a $10- service charge at USPS  #3- some type of "special" collector stamp that they charge more for (since it says it's a "silk cachet", whatever that is)  #4 - just another way to discourage hunting by charging more...again.

 

Think I'll wait until CWA has them.

Your link is a special format 'silk catchet'.  The Stamp is $25 when you buy just the stamp.

I was thinking it might be something like that but this is the only 18/19 stamp I could find offered when I first looked.  I just went back and found this...

...either I missed it somehow the first time or they just put this up after I saw the one I posted in the OP.
