The story about how a new stamp issue was created

North Korea

In August 2016, I contacted my then contact person in Korea Stamp Corporation, the North Korean state stamp agency, KSC, Moscow branch. I knew him since the Nordia 2005 Stamp Expo in Gothenburg. We had already co-operated 4 times before, in 2008, 2010 and 2015, in issuing special North Korean stamps.

Now, I informed him about the 2017 Finlandia European Stamp Exhibition and that Finland had issued 9 different stamps between 1942 and 2014 with Tampere topics, the City where the Expo Finlandia 2017 should be held between May 24-28, 2017. Three out of the nine stamps of the Tampere topics were bridges.
