What are Nondenominated Postage Stamps?

Nondenominated Postage Stamps 

Nondenominated postage stamps do not have a specific amount of postage noted on the stamp.  They have mostly been issued in the past when postage prices were scheduled to increase, but the specific prices had not yet been determined. Older nondenominational stamps may continue to be used for Domestic or International mail, unless noted otherwise. Please make sure you know the value of the older stamp and ensure that you have affixed the proper amount of postage to your mailpiece.  

Some examples of what nondenominated postage stamps look like are as follows: 

This stamp features a gold art deco-styled bird with letter in beak flying in a green background. "NONPROFIT ORG." is written along the bottom of the stamp.
