An awfully belated reply and follow-up to HB's comments on Rod's sheetlets, based on fragments of information gathered on Web;

These sheetlets are, as already mentioned by HB, reproduction of Japanese hand-engraved (etched) stamps, commemorating the 90th anniversary of Japanese postal system.

These sheetlets are entitled as "Reproduction of Early Japanese Postage Stamps", issued by "All Japan Postage Stamp Promotion Club", an incorporated foundation of Ministry of Postal and Telecommunications, Japan.

There seems to be 10 (ten) different issued of these sheetlets, each covering the representative series of the early Japanese stamps - Dragon, Cherry Blossom and Bird. Produced between 1961 (Showa 36) and 1963 (Showa 38), each stamp having "Mo-Koku" (literally meaning "reproduction engraving") imprint on the back.

The sheetlets originally comes with dedicated two-folded paper cover, where the detail of the reproduced stamps as well as date of issue etc. are printed.

Usually fetching around (or less than) 500 yen per mint sheetlet (with cover) thus very affordable, but the quality of reproduction is pretty impressive !
