Pack of 10 Vintage Unused US Postage stamps of the: 5 cent Flag of Korea from the OVERRUN NATIONS series of 1943 Issued: November 2, 1944 Scott catalog #: 921 U.S. #921 is part of the Overrun Countries Series, which honors each of the nations invaded by Axis powers during World War II. It pictures the flag of Korea, which features the Chinese Yin & Yang symbol & four symbols representing the Taoist philosophical ideas of the universe - harmony, symmetry, balance, & circulation. Prior to World War II, Korea had already been under Japanese control for decades. in 1939, more than five million Koreans were forced into labor & tens of thousands more were forced into the Japanese military. During the Japanese occupation, traditional Korean culture was discouraged, including the use of the Korean language. After the war, Korea was split at the 38th parallel, with the Soviet Union administering the North & the U.S. administering the South. Because of the elaborate process necessary for the full-color printing, the United States government's Bureau of Engraving & Printing in Washington, DC, contracted with a private firm, the American Bank Note Company in New York City, to produce the stamps. A 5¢ denomination - the foreign rate for first class postage - was chosen so the stamps could be used on overseas mail. The stamps were printed in relatively small quantities & were in high demand as soon as they were issued, with stocks across the country running out almost as soon as they were released. You will receive a pack of 10 stamps with original gum as issued by the Post Office. These stamps are genuine & valid to use as postage for current mailing. Be sure to use enough total postage to meet the current postage rate for mailing a letter if you want to use them for mailing. Also good to use for scrapbooking or displaying in a small picture frame. It's a miniature work of art.
