The Korea 1967 Christmas/New Year and TB seals


In 1967 the Korean National Tuberculosis Association (KNTA), dropped the 1961-1966’s examples of four different designs and issued just a single design, but with two different colors printed of that one design, for the Christmas and New Year/TB seals series. Only one design of a stylized boat carrying three people was used, and it was printed in two different sets of colors. This pair of 1967 seals was produced in sheets of 100 (10 x 10) with 50 of each set of different colors. The 1967 seals were printed by lithograph on un-watermarked white paper and the sheets were sold as perforated 12 ½.
