Beginning on January 8, 2006, the price of a United States domestic first-class stamp rose by two cents, from 37 to 39 cents. It is the first increase since 2002, when the price of a stamp rose from 34 to 37 cents, and a significant increase since the first stamp, which cost 2 cents, was issued in 1885.
