Issued to send Christmas greetings to friends and family, these festive stamps feature a snowman, soldier, jack-in-the-box, and reindeer. Produced as a booklet of 20, a sheet of 50, and a self-adhesive pane of 12, these stamps gave postal patrons a variety of options for sending their holiday mail. In addition, the "snowman" design was also issued as a self-adhesive pane of 18 to be sold through automated teller machines. In addition to obvious size differences, a closer look will reveal a difference in the number of dots on each stamp, thus creating a minor design difference as well.
