Tax Stamps

Yesterday afternoon, I went to the local USPS branch and mailed my Federal and State 2006 income tax returns.

The two returns were mailed in identical flat envelopes, with the State return having less pages.

After weighing the envelopes, the postal clerk put a small, dark stamp on each envelope and added a larger colorful stamp to one of the envelopes, presumably the federal return. I couldn't see the face values of any of the stamps, but I was charged $1.98 for the total of the three stamps.

What were the face values of the stamps?

Note: I neither have an answer nor know if an answer is possible.
