For those who collect single stamps, please note that there are two types of die-cutting for the Permanent Domestic Rate Stamps - Booklet of 10 from the year of the rat 2020. The stamps in the left panel start with a valley and those in the right panel start with a peak. The example showing the interior of this booklet on the Post-Canada website is wrong, the drawing shows all of the stamps starting with a valley and it is wrong.

Must check mine when I go home this evening. Never paid much attention to this. After all Canada Post illustrations are sometimes only illustrations. Not to be taken for granted to be the actual item.

Indeed, the die-cutting drawings on the Post-Canada website for this stamp is not a true copy of the final product.
It is not often that they use more than one type of serpentine die-cutting for a booklet. Before this one, Canada Post had used three different die-cutting for the EID stamp # 2998, 2998i, 2998ii (BK670)and seven types of die-cutting for the Battle of Vimi Ridge #2982 (BK666)The reason for this ????
