    In the closing-phases of the Korean War the government of South-Korea
    introduced a currency-reform on Feb.14th,1953.
    100 Won (1946-52) became one Hwan (no subdivision).
    All stamps in Won-currency were demonitized.

    The first 126 souvenir sheets of South-Korea,issued between 1948 -1958
    range from expensive to very expensive.Only the 1952/52 series of 22
    s.s.,honoring the allied countries of the Korean War,is quite affordable
    with less than $ 1000.- for the set.
    I own just one of those early s.s.:
    Ko 168B.jpg
    Issued 1954,I bought it for my butterflies collection.I think it
    is the s.s. of this thematic with the smallest print: 500 s.s.
