North Korean missile tests spur interest in stamps

North Korea

The recent North Korean missile tests have created a whole series of news articles about North Korean stamps. North Korean stamps are not much reported on, but the fact that North Korea produced a series of stamps and sheets showing these missiles and their tests plus messages regarding North Korean capabilities meant news outlets all of a sudden discovered these stamps. 

Some examples of webpages from newspapers and tv stations showing North Korean stamps are below.
