Not in my album 4
When the Israeli post office privatized and became Israel Post, new issue subscribers were once again given a special gift. This souvenir sheet differs from the regular issue only slightly. There is an embossed running stag in the upper left of the souvenir sheet. It is also overprinted with a serial number in the lower right. Since the regular issue souvenir sheet was already imperf, there was no change in that respect. The souvenir sheet was sent in a protective sleeve explaining the reason for the gift. Once again, there was no notice given about this special issue, and there was no opportunity to buy these from the philatelic service.
