The Korea 1965 Christmas/New Year and TB seals


In 1965 the Korean National Tuberculosis Association (KNTA), following 1961-1964’s examples, would again introduce multiple seals with four different designs in the Christmas and New Year/TB seals series. All four seals for 1965 depicted stylized fauna, one with a dear, another with a peacock, a third with mandarin ducks and the fourth with cranes. These 1965 seals were produced in sheets of 50 (10 x 5). The 1965 seals were printed by lithograph on un-watermarked white paper and the sheets were sold as perforated 12.

What is unusual about the 1965 seals is that for the first time since 1940 a booklet of Korean Christmas and New Year/TB seals was produced. This booklet used panes of 10 seals that were cut from the margins of the sheets, with 10 panes per booklet. The 10 panes of 10 seals each were stapled together and the cover was glued on to the first and last panes of 10 seals. Each booklet contains 100 seals.
