Canada Picture Postage Stamps

Picture Postage Sunflower

A "Maple Leaf in the Fall" design is now being used on the envelope mailed housing Picture Postage orders from the Canadian Bank Note Company, along with a new cancel. The date as shown below, October 1, 2007 is the first I have seen, but others may exist. These stamps have the tagging variety that includes the hidden date in the tagging. The last date seen for the Lily issue is April 27, 2007. As the previous Lilly issue, the stamps are not available for sale, so mint copies do not exist.
