KPC3477-3480: Repatriated Cultural Heritage

New Releases ROK

(News from 우정사업본부 / KoreaPost) On 26 February 2021 KoreaPost issued a set of stamps showing examples of items which form part of Korean cultural heritage and which were previously taken to a location outside of Korea but which have recently been returned to Korea. This unfortunate situation of cultural heritage no longer residing, for whatever reason, in the country of origine is an international problem which is not unique to Korea. However, Korea has in recent years been quite succesful in repatriating such historical items.

KoreaPost released the stamps in a souvenir stamp sheet containing 16 stamps (4×4) of 380 won each in four designs, printed by Cartor for POSA:
