  1. Hello
    Do you know how I can order the set of dinosaur stamps issued by DPRK: KSC5291-5294: Natural History Museum?
    I would like to order the set of stamps, first day cover, maxicards and leaflet.
    Any help would be wonderful
    thank you

    1. Hi Jon, there are several ways of obtaining North Korean stamps. One way is to order directly through the official website of the Korea Stamp Corporation, at http://www.korstamp.com.kp/. However, at the moment the North Korean borders are closed, stamps are next to impossible to get. The other option is to look for them on auction websites such as Ebay and Delcampe. But these stamps were issued after the border was closed, so that could be difficult as well. Once the border opens these stamps will very probably be available again.
