    What are your thought’s on Canada Post’s latest issue featuring four Canadian bear species? Do you collect other bear stamps issued by Canada or other countries around the world?

    What other topicals pique your interest?

    I have three bears fdc envelopes. Two have the polar bear in the top left hand corner. and the third the polar bear is in the top right hand corner. They are in two sets like they are in the booklet of eight stamps.
    Does anybody know why Canada post does this or is this an error

    Hi Donald. Thanks for reaching out! The stamps used on the OFDC are taken from the booklet, which has two mirrored arrangements of the four stamps. So as not to waste booklets, both “mirrored” sides of the booklet stamps are affixed to OFDCs creating two different versions- one with the black bear and Kermode on the left, the polar and grizzly on the right and another one with polar and grizzly on the left, the black bear and Kermode on the right. for Canada Post!


    Nice, Donald!
