The South Korean Stamp Scene (Part 9)

Articles

What follows is an update on my article of 1996 about the investment potential of South Korean stamps. In 1972 (when stamps were touted as investments) Linn’s Weekly Stamp News and others started “Investment Suggestions” which is now called the “Tip of the Week”. In about 1980 Linn’s began a “Trends of Stamp Values” which purported to be the “retail” values of stamps. Linn’s stopped their “Trends” in October, 2000 and the last “Trends” for South Korean stamps was Nov. 1, 1999. I used the Scott catalogs from then on which gave a relative value of the stamps. The Scott are from the 2008, 2018, 2019 and 2020 editions. (Values are in US$ and all stamps are Mint-Never Hinged. Ex 92a).
