When were Christmas 6 cent stamps printed?

I found an old stamp collection of my grandmother's and was curious about the 6 cent stamps.

The Christmas 6 cent stamp, Scott number 1363, was printed in 1968. It shows a Madona by Van Eyck. The Christmas stamp from 1969 is also 6 cents and features a sleigh drawn carriage and house. The 1970-71 Christmas stamps show a nativity scene and there are four separate toy stamps.

The 6 cent Christmas stamps were first printed in 1967 through 1970. Each year there was something different printed on them. In 1967 is was the virgin Mary, in 1968 was Gabrial, 1969 a horse, and in 1970 one set had the nativity and one had toys.

The only year that 6 cent commemorative Christmas stamps were printed was 1968 and it should be Van Eyck's Madonna.
