This Listing is for ONE NEW Double-Sided Souvenir Sheet of 24 x 37¢ Lunar Happy New Year Stamps from 2005.

Mint. MNH. No flaws. From a Smoke-free and Pet-free Environment.

 


The U.S. Postal Service issued this unique double-sided souvenir sheet of 37¢ Lunar New Year stamps in twelve designs on January 6, 2005, in Honolulu, HI. Artist Clarence Lee, of Honolulu, created intricate paper-cut designs for each of the 12 animals associated with the Chinese lunar calendar, representing the Year of the Rat, Ox, Tiger, Rabbit, Dragon, Snake, Horse, Ram, Monkey, Rooster, Dog, and Boar. Calligrapher Lau Bun, also of Honolulu, drew the Kanji characters on the side of the souvenir sheet, which may be translated as “Happy New Year!” The same greeting appears in English at the top of the sheet. People of Chinese, Korean, Vietnamese, Tibetan, and Mongolian heritage celebrate the Lunar New Year.


13th in the U.S. Lunar New Year stamp series. 

A compilation souvenir sheet with all 12 animals from the Lunar New Year stamp series (1992-2004).

Includes 2 stamps of each animal (1 on each side): Rat, Ox, Tiger, Rabbit, Dragon, Snake, Horse, Ram, Monkey, Rooster, Dog and Boar.

“Happy New Year!” is in English across the top and in Kanji characters down the left (on one side) and down the right (on the other side).

Self-adhesive collectible stamps or use for postage.
