DPRK Stamp Exhibition Opens

Pyongyang, March 12 (KCNA) — A Korean stamp exhibition is now going on to commemorate the 60th anniversary of the publication of the first stamp of the DPRK.

Displayed at the exhibition opened on March 9 are over 4,500 kinds of stamps issued reflecting the proud annals of the Korean revolution after the first DPRK stamp “Samson Rock” was released on March 12, Juche 35 (1946) under the meticulous care of President Kim Il Sung.

Looking round the stamps carrying portraits of President Kim Il Sung, leader Kim Jong Il and anti-Japanese war hero Kim Jong Suk, the visitors are retrospecting on the brilliant revolutionary life and undying feats of the peerlessly great persons.
Attracting the eyes of the visitors are the Korean stamps collected and displayed at the exhibition in chronological and thematic order by philatelists across the country.
