Uncut Press Sheet. After 2 full cycles of 12 Lunar New Year issues from 1997 to 2020, Canada Post recapped the second series in January 2021 by reissuing the previous 12 designs in 3 formats: a self-adhesive booklet, a gummed pane of 12 and an uncut press sheet of 12 souvenir sheets. Released while the COVID pandemic was in full swing this issue was highly sought-after and sold out within a couple of weeks, with the press sheets soon being resold online for hundreds of dollars. There are 2 sheet types with either "8:51:46 AM" timing printed at the bottom of the sheet or "3:53:18 PM" timing with a squiggly line flaw on the Monkey stamp; the AM sheet offered here without the "squiggle" is much scarcer. Post Office fresh condition in the original tube. 2023 Unitrade =
