Recently I bought at a Dutch stamp fair, Winterstamps, this item. It is not particularly valuable, but it did peak my interest because I had not seen this type of item before. Nowadays the Korea Stamp Corporation, the official state run North Korean stamp issuing organization, issues rather small new stamp issue leaflets/brochures.
These new stamp issue brochures used to be much larger and were printed for some time on quite luxurious paper. But even more interesting is the item here. Not only is it printed quite well, it even comes with faux gold colour letters (“KOREAN STAMPS” on front). But the really interesting thing is the free stamp sheet inside.
Who knows more about this particular item? And were there more issued at the time? Do you have examples of other issues being put into such a card and given away? Please leave your comment below or contact us through the KSS contact form if you have more information.
