Korean Passport Stamps in U.S. Dollars in Passport


Hasegawa’s new revenue catalogue does not include those stamps issued in the U.S. in U.S. dollars. Figures 1 and 2 illustrate two such stamps, denominated $10, and contained in my own passport that has now expired and has been cancelled. The stamps were used to verify payment of visa fees. One has a serial number, while the other does not; other differences are obvious from a comparison.
