    Hwan (right from 20) correct

    Ko 206 III.jpg

    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.

    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.
    Korea 213b.jpg
    The complete booklet:
    Korea 213BK.jpg
    Michel lists a single stamp at € 60.-,so you can imagine why I am
    cautious,when handling that booklet !

    Werner, I truly appreciate this sharing of your knowledge on this and other articles related. Your time, energy, and understanding do not go unappreciated. Let me know if you ever have a PDF summary. I love to harvest stamp knowledge. Stay healthy.

    Ponderowsa,
    thank you for the flowers !
    No,I have no plans for a summary.
    I do not post mainly for altruistic reasons.Scanning and reading,
    what I do not know yet about the shown stamps,is a pleasure to me.
    I guess I learn a lot more about the different subjects,than a reader
    of my posts ever can.Unless this reader feels inspired to have a closer
    look into the matter on his own.
    It also helps to let my English not to become too rusty.
    And yes,I feel some pride to show some of the not that common
    stamps from my collection(s) to other collectors,who might be
    interested.That are not too many,if I take the use of the like-button
    as a measurement.
    But then there are not that many members of this forum,taking part
    on a regular base.You,as a "new member" of more than six years,
    will know that !
    Easter Monday and today we had snowshowers all the time.The week
    before there were well above 20° C and sunshine for days.That´s
    April in Germany.
    From this week on people of my age-group can apply for a date
    to get vaccinated.So hopefully the threat of Covid-19 will soon
    be gone,hopefully for good !
    Hope the same will be true for you !
    Werner

    followed 1955/56 by stamps on laid paper
    watermark 2 was used in 1957
