Digital images?
Since a few months the Korea Stamp Corporation stopped listing all its stamp releases on the KSC website. This means that only a few issues/series are available in a digital format. To be able to create a more complete listing we have therefore decided to scan the printed versions of new issue leaflets and use the information contained in those leaflets for the website. These scanned images are however necessarily of a lower quality than if we had access to digital imagery.
