Issued in conjunction with the 1978 Canadian Philatelic Exhibition in Toronto, the CAPEX souvenir sheet was the first U.S. souvenir sheet to be released outside the country. Eight different stamps, featuring popular animals and birds from North America, appear together on this colorful sheet.
Along with the arctic fox, the red fox, which is valued for its long, soft fur, is the most common type found in the U.S. and Canada. Although the majority of red foxes have reddish coats, some may have silver coats – black tipped with white.
