A complete run of all the commemorative issues that came out between 1989 and 1997 on Peterborough paper, other than those that are already included as part of other lots (World War II, Forests, Land Vehicles, 1994 Christmas and Year of the Ox sheets).

The varieties present in this lot include: 1990 Prehistoric Life in 2 variations; 1994 Famous Canadians on MF paper; 1994 Prehistoric Life on LF, HF and an unlisted DF paper; 1994 Jeanne Sauve on LF and MF paper; 1995 Flag on HF paper; 1995 Lunenburg Academy on HF paper; 1996 Christmas on both listed papers, 1997 Year of the Ox single on DF, LF and MF paper; the 1996 Birds strip on MF paper; the Canadian Tire Issue on HF paper and the Blue Poppy stamp on HF paper.
