The Korea 1970 Christmas/New Year and TB seals


In 1970 the Korean National Tuberculosis Association (KNTA) changed its format for issuing TB seals by issuing 20 different designs. All the designs depict a stylized child, either a boy or a girl, in different scenes of play. Actually there were 10 distinct designs with the second row of the sheets depicting the seals with the children facing the opposite direction of the first row of seals.

The 1970 seals was produced both in sheets of 50 (10 x 5) seals with 3 sets of 10 designs of the top row and 2 sets of the other 10 designs on the second row per sheet, and also in sheets of 100 (10 x 10) seals with 5 sets of each design per sheet. The 1970 seals were printed by lithograph on un-watermarked white paper and the sheets were sold as perforated 12 ½.
