Arriving in the mail yesterday on the back cover of the 2019 Spring USA Philatelic is the USPS Celebrating Lunar New Year Commemorative Boxed Set. It includes all 12 years of souvenir sheets in the Lunar New Year Series!
Here is the opportunity to get “All 12 souvenir sheets of the Celebrating Lunar New Year stamps…” – all 12 years worth – one from each year!
To begin with, over at the online USPS Postal Store, sure enough, there it is with an issue date of January 17, 2019, available for ordering for $ 114.95.
“Celebrate the conclusion of a consummately elegant series with this new 7.094 x 8.375 x 2-inch Celebrating Lunar New Year Commemorative Boxed Set.”
Furthermore, reading the description of the boxed set it is listing the 144 mint stamps, a letter-pressed certificate of authenticity (“signed and numbered by the stamp artist”); and 12 beautiful folios “exploring the artistic process behind each issuance.”
