Japanese Offices in Korea Double-Circle Date Stamps (1876-1888)

Old Korea

This is a collection of date stamps used in Japanese Offices in Korea from 1876 to 1888. During this period the first type of CDS, “double-circle date stamps”, was used at Busan (or “Fusan” in Japanese), Wonsan (or “Gensan”), and Incheon (or “Ninsen”). The Japanese-language version of this exhibit was shown at JAPEX 2019 and STAMPEX JAPAN 2021 as part of a larger exhibit that covered the entire duration of the activities of the Imperial Japanese Post Offices in Korea from 1876 to 1945.
