882. New IGPC Products Feature Chinese New Year.

  There's much to spend one's money on at this time of the year and so fortunately the latest paraphilatelic products to have been issued by the US-based philatelic agency, IGPC, hold no temptations for me. The products have the names of a number of Commonwealth countries printed on them although the subject matter - especially the Lunar new year items - appears to have little to do with those territories and many of the items are unattractive - even ugly - and expensive.
