    "Children´s Saving Stamps,issued April 1st,1960.
    None of the "usual" souvenir sheets was issued.However a s.s. with
    both stamps was issued (and will be shown) later,commemorating
    the " 4th Postal Week".
    (Some) korean catalogues list these stamps as definitives.

    Stamps of the same designs were issued in later years in Won-currency.
    Of those three different pairs exist: on white paper,on granite paper
    with watermark and on granite paper with no watermark.

    Don´t know why,but I had left out scanning and posting the
    following definitive set:
    Korea 263.jpg
    Korea 266.jpg
    The set should be placed in between posts 43 and 44.
    Unlike the previous definitives,this set is printed on ordinary white
    paper,with watermark 3,instead of wmk. 2 as before.(please look
    at post 36 for the different watermarks !)
    Stamps were issued:
    2,4,10,20,40,100 Hwan Dec.18th,1957
    30 Hwan Aug.15th,1958
    5,15 Hwan Nov.20th,1958
    50,500,1000 Hwan Dec.15th,1958
