South Korea 2017 Nature in DMZ Stamps with Rock dust

Issue date 5 June 2017

A Demilitarized Zone (DMZ) divides the Korean Peninsula in two since 1953 with a buffer zone that maintains a distance between the troops of the two countries - Democratic People's Republic of Korea in the North and the Republic of Korea in the South.

South Korean Post has issued 2 stamps featuring the fauna in the demilitarized zone - one stamp with a squirrel next to a soldier's helmet with a bullet hole and and the second stamp with a kingfisher sitting on a barbed wire.

Both stamps feature UV lacquer printing with the stamp featuring the helmet having an iron powder printing effect.
