    Three types of the stamp exist:
    Ko 206 I.jpg
    Type I
    normal,second charakter = Han (part of the country name)

    Ko 206 II.jpg
    type II
    second character (missing horizontal stroke) = Hin (bright)

    Ko 206 Ia.jpg
    Hwan (right from 20) correct

    Ko 206 III.jpg
    type III
    characters of Hwan are connected

    Printed in sheets of 50.Sheets are made up by 30 stamps of type I
    and 10 stamps each of type II and type III.
    Se-tenant stamps of different types exist.
    6000 sheets (300.000 stamps) were printed.

    the above stamp (President´s Rhee 81st birthday;issued March 26th,
    1956) exists on vertically laid paper (left stamp) and horizontally laid
    paper (right stamp).The latter is about 50 % dearer.

    The 20 Hwan issued Oct.19th,1955 (left stamp) and the one issued
    Feb. 2nd,1955 (right stamp) not only differ by paper:left stamp
    wmk.zig-zag lines (left) and laid paper (right).But there are also slight
    printing differences.
    Slightly confusing can be,that the major-catalogues list the stamp from
    October before that one from February.

    The 20 H.,issued in May 1956,(right stamp,see post #25),differs from
    the 1955 stamps,apart from some minor details,in the last letter
    of the head-inscription.

    There is a booklet,containing 5 panes of 6 stamps each of the 20 Hwan
    stamp on horizontally laid paper.
    Other than shown above,the panes have selvages all around.I can only
    show the lower part of an intact pane,because I do not want to damage
    the only booklet I have.

    The complete booklet:

    Michel lists a single stamp at € 60.-,so you can imagine why I am
    cautious,when handling that booklet !

    Aditional Air-Mail stamps (to the issue of 1954),now with the altered
    last letter as above,issued July 20th,1956.
    Printed on (vertical) laid paper.The 110 and 205 Hwan values exist
    on horizontally laid paper also.(rather expensive)
